Doctors of Chiropractic were present at the London Games in unprecedented numbers, despite a virtual media embargo on news about our contributions to the Olympic Games. While the World saw many athletes covered in Kenso Kaze, DC's invention, (Kinesiotape), barely a word was said or an interview broadcast about the role of Chiropractic in the London Games. Meanwhile, the US brought its largest contingent yet of DC's with the USOC's medical director, William Moreau, DC, accompanied by eight others, and Terry Schroeder, DC, featured as head coach for the US Water Polo team, never mentioning his degree or profession.
NEWS: The newest inductees into the IAOCO are now listed in Gold and in Silver.
NOTE: Some unknown number of Chiropractic Doctors apparently joined a delegation sponsored and paid for by some commercial venture. This company apparently donated money to certain National Governing Bodies, and one of the quid pro quo's appears to have been that the NGB take some of their representatives to the Games. These DC's may or may not have met all the requirements for attending International sports events set by the International Federation of Sports Chiropractic [FICS] games commission (we just have no information), and as such, their participation and qualifications were not approved by, or monitored by the profession. This gives them a quasi official status; on the one hand they were invited by a specific sport, and on the other they were not invited by their National Olympic Team. Accordingly they are not given IAOCO member status and thus do not appear on this site.
TRUTH in ADVERTISING: We believe that in good faith, and for full disclosure, in any advertising, these DC's should not refer to themselves as "Olympic Team Doctors", but only as DC's who "attended the Olympic Games at the invitation of the [fill in the blank] NGB".
