As a triathlete Jan Guenther, 50, has accomplished soooooo much in her career. She's a former US Master of the Year, has won more MMAs (16!) than anyone else and is a two-time overall amateur champion at Ironman Wisconsin (2002 & 2009).

Jan is also a world class nordic skier, even now at the age of 50. And she is one of the few athletes in this great sport to race in a tu tu. (There's a guy in Duluth that sometimes does so, as well.) The five-time Mora Vasaloppet champion enjoyed another stellar ski season in 2010.

Here are her results:

* Pepsi Challenge 48K Freestyle - 3rd overall woman (2:31:63)
* City of Lakes Loppet 33K Freestyle - 6th overall woman (1:28:28)
* Mora Vasaloppet 58K Freestyle - 5th overall woman - 2:36:30
* American Birkebeiner 50K Freestyle - 10th overall woman - 2:32:22
