AMARILLO -- Our athletes go through a lot in the field and are in constant danger of getting hurt.
But a local orthopedic surgeon is making sure they get the treatment they deserve in case it happens.
Dr. Thane Morgan serves as a physician for the US Olympic Ski Team.
He volunteers his time specifically with the men's alpine speed team and covers treatment when they compete in the World Cup.
The top ranked teams in that competition then head to the Winter Olympics.
Dr. Morgan says he will not attend the Winter Olympics in Sochi but offers his full support for our teams.
