Belgrade chiropractor Jonathan Wilhelm has been invited to travel with the Team USA bobsled and skeleton teams while they compete at World Cup events in Calgary, Alberta and Park City, Utah in November.
Wilhelm, a sports medicine chiropractor, spent a week last month interning with Team USA sports medicine at the U.S. Olympic training complex in Colorado Springs, Colo.
He said he worked with world-class athletes in several sports, including gymnastics, wrestling, figure skating and shooting. He said he admires their lifelong dedication.
He returns next month for a second weeklong internship.
Wilhelm recently learned he is a candidate to be part of the sports medicine team that travels with Team USA to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
