Olympic Dreams Become Reality for 2 Locals
While taking a class in 2005 revolving around sports medicine, injuries and injury rehabilitation, a chiropractor spoke about his experience travelling with Olympic teams and how there is a short list of chiropractors that get invited to the games.
Inspired by the stories, this is where local chiropractor Marc Taczanowski’s Olympic dreams began.

Daly began his career as a skeleton athlete in 2001 and has since developed an extensive resume, earning accolades such as placing first in the Lake Placid America's Cup during the 2007-08 season, and winning the St. Moritz Europa Cup and the Igls Europa Cup during the 2008-09 season.
