Logan Faculty and Alumni Participate in 2016 Olympics in Rio


All eyes were on Rio de Janeiro as the best athletes in the world assembled for the Olympic and Paralympic Games this summer. Several Logan alumni and one faculty member served as coaches while one alumna competed. 

Melissa Tancredi, DC, MS (Class of 2014) 
Pictured above on the far left.

After competing in the 2012 Olympic Games in London as a member of the Canadian soccer team, Dr. Tancredi completed her next new challenge: earning her Doctor of Chiropractic and Master’s in Sports Science and Rehabilitation degrees from Logan. This past year, Dr. Tancredi helped her team win bronze at the Olympic Games not only by scoring goals, but by using her skills to provide care for teammates. Currently, Dr. Tancredi is playing in Sweden for Orebro FC and has qualified for the Union of European Football Associations Champions League. In the future, she plans to practice chiropractic full time. “I see myself staying close to sports and finding a new journey and new challenges to take on,” said Dr. Tancredi. “I love my profession and I’m very excited to start fresh and create a new identity within chiropractic.”
 
Richard Olree, DC (Class of 1981)

For two years Dr. Olree has provided chiropractic care for three-time cancer survivor and blind athlete Ivonne Mosquera- Schmidt. Instead of looking at blindness as a setback, Ivonne saw it as an opportunity to bridge the gap between disabled and ablebodied athletes. Through years of training and chiropractic care, Ivonne regained strength and endurance, and this past July qualified for the U.S. Paralympic Track and Field team. Dr. Olree joined Ivonne in Rio de Janiero for the 2016 Paralympic Games.

“She was in the finals for the T11 women in the 1500-meter at these Olympics,” said Dr. Olree. “Though she was not on the podium, she is a true chiropractic hero for all the work and hardship she has endured.” Today, Ivonne is the World Champion in Paratriathlon in the sprint and Olympic distances and has set four American records for T11 women. 


David Parish, DC, MS, CSCS, DACBSP, ICCSP and Joel Dekanich, DC, RN, MS, DACBSP, CSCS (MSR Class of 2013)

Representing the U.S. Para Powerlifting Team, Dr. Parish, associate dean of clinical care and director of sports science and rehabilitation, returned from the 2016 Paralympic Games as a proud coach of powerlifter Ahmed Shafik. Dr. Parish was joined by Dr. Dekanich, founder and director of Vail Integrated Medicine Group. Ahmed finished his second and final Paralympic games, taking seventh place. “When I first volunteered as a United States Olympic Committee sports medicine provider, I had no idea where it would lead. I certainly never dreamed I would be a part of two Paralympic teams for the USA,” said Dr. Parish. “Having now been to the ‘big stage’ as both a doctor and a coach, I can truly say that Logan University has enabled me to reach for what I dreamed of.”


Kyle Peacock, DC (Class of 2012), Matt Uchtman, DC (Class of 2007) and Nick Barnes, DC (Class of 2008) also attended the Olympic Games in Rio to treat members of the U.S. Wrestling Team.
