Date:8/4/2008

ROCHESTER, Minn., Aug. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mayo Clinic's medical experts offer breadth and depth about health issues and background related to the Olympic Games and Olympians. These are just some of our experts. Call us -- we'll do our best to meet your needs.

Michael Joyner, M.D., is an anesthesiologist and specialist in exercise science, with special interest in track and field. He says that athletes' performances continue to improve not necessarily because of genetics but because of training harder and longer, improved medical care and the fact that world-class athletes from more countries now participate.

Mary Oconnor, M.D., is chair of Orthopedic Surgery at Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida. She was a member of the Olympic rowing team in 1980 when the U.S. boycotted the games. Dr. Oconnor was awarded a Congressional Gold Medal for being a team member. She specializes in limb and knee repair and in women's health and can talk about any aspect of bone damage and treatment.
