USOTC 2010 - Velodrome
I spent some time with the Australian Cycling Team. They start off with a warm-up doing about 35 laps of this Velodrome followed by max effort sprints to catch this motorcycle that travels at speeds of 50-60 mph.
USOTC 2010 - Rings
Strength and discipline - these gymnasts work so hard at practice it’s hard to believe their bodies don’t get beat up more. They fall, get back up, and do it again not even thinking that their previous slight misjudgment in hand or eye placement could’ve put them in the hospital!
Words can’t express the gratitude I have for the opportunity to serve such elite athletes, but more importantly humble, dedicated human beings. Thank you everyone at the USOTC for making my experience valuable. To all the athletes: see you 2012 in London!! All my love, Dr. Charmaine Magale, DC
