More on Thor: Thor started skiing as soon as he could walk and was introduced to biathlon at the age of 5 by his father, Marc Sheppard. Thor raced at the local level until 2015, when he started traveling to races and racing cross country skiing on the West Yellowstone Nordic Ski Team. In 2017, Thor was selected to compete at the Liatoppen Skiskytterfestival in Norway, the largest biathlon race in the world, which made him decide that he wanted to pursue biathlon exclusively. Outside of skiing and biathlon, Thor enjoys hiking, climbing, and other outdoor activities, computer programming, UAV flying, playing the piano, listening to music, and reading.
