US Olympic Committee Names Boulder's Neal Henderson as one of it's Coaches of the Year

News Item: 

From the USAC Website

The United States Olympic Committee today announced Neal Henderson (cycling; Boulder, Colo.) as the 2011 Doc Counsilman Science Award winner and one of its coaches of the year.

After working with USA Cycling's track programs, Henderson was nominated for the award by USA Cycling. For years, Henderson has been at the forefront of applying scientific principles in the lab and on the field to improve athlete performance in the world of cycling. During the 2010-11 season, he formulated additional tools and protocols for aerodynamic drag analysis, which helped determine the specific power required for cyclists to attain a given speed. The results helped pace the USA Cycling team to a silver-medal finish at the 2011 UCI Track Cycling World Championships. Later that summer, Henderson continued aerodynamic testing to help identify the best wheel combinations for U.S. cyclists competing at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Nominated by USA Cycling, Henderson is a rare, dual-certified elite USA Cycling and USA Triathlon coach and has been instrumental in establishing training methods based on exercise physiology, including supplemental oxygen training and a computrainer program for junior cyclists at the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine.
