If you are thinking about trying to lose some weight in the New Year… look no further than Duncan for inspiration.

Duncan resident Ding Peterson has won five thousand dollars after finishing second in a nutrition contest.

Peterson says a 12-month program at a local fitness centre changed his life as he came back from a tumor in his spine.

Peterson says he plans to use the money to keep up with his nutrition studies and take more coaching sessions, as well as do some travelling.
