SportDiscus at Olympic Games
Ovid Technologies, a provider of electronic medical, scientific, and social sciences information solutions, and SIRC, a source of academic and medical sport research, provided free access to SIRC SportDiscus, a premier sports medicine database, to physicians, coaches, athletes and sports administrators throughout the Pre-Olympic Scientific Congress and the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece.
“As with the athletes themselves, only world-class products and services make it to the Olympics”, said Gary Foster, President and CEO of Ovid. “We’re, therefore, thrilled to have been selected, along with SIRC, to provide vital sports medicine data that will help these gifted athletes perform at their very best. Ovid’s vast repository and precision research tools, coupled with SIRC’s comprehensive database, will help physicians, coaches and other professionals support the athletes during the games”.
