Summer Olympics: Indy has become center for U.S. athletes looking to gain scientific edge

July 16, 2012

Months after the 2008 Beijing Olympics, American track and field athletes were surveyed to identify their greatest need.

The expected answer: More money.

The athletes' answer: More sports science and medical support.

The consequence: For many athletes, the road to London ran through Indianapolis.

Indianapolis-based USA Track & Field has been using scientific techniques for years. But a partnership with St. Vincent Sports Performance that began after the survey has increased the opportunities.

Of 125 athletes on the U.S. track team for the London Olympics, 55 have used St. Vincent services, with 41 traveling to Indianapolis.
