myself in a way I never had before. It was me and only me,
from start to finish, providing all the medical advice and
treatment. A lot of pressure, but a lot of reward,” Murray said.
Dr. Sara Cuperus worked with Murray at the Olympic
Training Center in Chula Vista and was the only chiropractor
who was also BOC certified working during her two week
rotation. Her experiences including spending time in the
athletic training facility and supporting all the athletes from
Archery, BMX, Women’s Bobsled, Track and Field, Men’s
and Women’s Sprint Kayak, and Men’s and Women’s Junior
“Don’t be afraid to put your time in, even if that means
supporting local events like races and such,” Cuperus
advises to young professionals, “Each of those athlete
interactions and experiences will teach you something
that you can take with you and use in the future.”

ATs MAKING A DIFFERENCE
These ATs also recommended continuing education and
encourages courses that teach hands-on skills and anything
to set an AT apart. Bloch thought Muscle Energy, Functional
Movement Screening, Kinesiology Taping and Active Release
Techniques were very valuable tools.
Kaschub noted, “It is absolutely imperative that you use
continuing education to stay up-to-date on the latest and
greatest skills, therapies, and modalities. Like all professional
athletes, they will “shop around” for the next best thing, but if
you are informed on these techniques they will hopefully seek
out your advice first.”
To represent your country on a global scale is possibly the
greatest honor in sports. We thank all ATs for representing
the USA and their tremendous work with athletes to support
the Olympic Dream.
