Sydney Olympics 2000
From 1998 to 2003, Center of Balance director Tom McCook was a conditioning coach for the Stanford Women's Swim Team. For over 2 years, he trained Olympic gold medal swimmers Jenny Thompson and Misty Hyman in preparation for the Olympics. In September 2000, Tom and Karen traveled to Sydney, Australia with the Stanford swimmers and other members of the US Women's Olympic Swim Team, so Tom could work with Jenny and Misty during the Games. We kept a “blog” with exciting behind-the-scenes photos and updates from the Games — visit our Olympics page!
