CONWAY, NH – Rapid Insight has opted to renew its sponsorship support of hometown Olympic athlete Sean Doherty. Doherty, who competed in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, will take on the world’s best biathletes over the course of the 2017-2018 season. Carrying the support of Rapid Insight and his hometown fans, Doherty hopes to earn a spot on the 2018 United States Olympic Biathlon team. The 2018 Games take place in PyeongChang, South Korea in February.
“I really appreciate the support I get from Rapid Insight, especially since this year is critical with the 2018 Olympics on the horizon,” said Doherty. “We’ve been training hard and smart and it’s always exciting to get support from my home town.”

There are certainly some parallels between the work Rapid Insight does in data analytics and the unique sport of biathlon, a winter sport that combines cross-country skiing with rifle shooting. In both, speed and accuracy are paramount. Plus, like Rapid Insight, Doherty is born and raised in the Mount Washington Valley. For Rapid Insight Founder and CEO Mike Laracy, these common threads made the decision to continue its sponsorship support an easy one
“At Rapid Insight, we love to support our local community, and Sean is such an inspiring local success story. We enjoy cheering him on, and we’ll follow his successes over the course of the season, wherever in the world he may be,” said Laracy. “We’re proud to give him our support.”
As a sponsor, Rapid Insight will follow Doherty’s progress while he competes in the 2018 Biathlon World Cup held across the globe. News and results will be posted on Rapid Insight’s website, rapidinsight.com.
