A Vermonter who returned from the London Games last month was charged with keeping the athletes of a certain U.S. mens' team healthy and injury-free.
It's no easy task for any athletic trainer to do that, especially with high-caliber athletes that participate in full-contact sports.
It's especially difficult when those athletes already have serious injuries, and compete in one of the roughest games imaginable.
Jim Murdock is an athletic trainer at Norwich University, and led the medical care team that worked with an elite squad of competitors at the 2012 Paralympics in London.
