|Bio:||Richard L. Domey graduated from Eastern Oregon University with a B.S. in 1965 and an M.S. in secondary education in 1972. He taught at Baker City High School from 1966 to 1974 and at Washington State University from 1974 to 1986 where he obtained his Doctor of Philosophy in Theatre in 1980. During the 1970s and 80s he was active as a narrator and moderator for Public Television productions and as a narrator and producer for National Guard training films.
He retired from the Oregon National Guard with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel after thirty years of service. He continued his hobby of competitive shooting, becoming a member of the All National Guard high power shooting team and then of the All Guard International Shooting Team that won numerous national championships and set five national records. As a world-class competitor in the final Olympic, World Championship and Pan American trials, he was invited to coach at the U.S. Olympic Training Center. The experience enabled him to write the book, "Mental Training for Shooting Success," as well as articles that have been published in a number of international journals.
As a world class shooter with experience in biathlon, he was asked to judge at the XIII Winter Olympic Games at Lake Placid in 1980. With that experience he wrote the U.S. Army?s training manual for the sport of biathlon and then coached with the All Guard Biathlon team. In 1984, he wrote the shooting events procedure manual for the Olympic Games at Los Angles. In 1988 he was chosen to coach biathlon at the XV Winter Olympic Games held in Calgary, Canada.
