Do Olympic athletes just wake up one day and decide to compete? On today’s episode we chat with Dr. Erica Witter-Davis as she unpacks her past Olympic career and how it led her to where she is today. She shares a behind the scenes look at the passion and drive it takes to be an Olympic athlete and what you can do today to optimize your performance.

Dr. Witter-Davis attended the University of Tennessee – Knoxville on an athletic scholarship and went on to obtain her Bachelors of Science degree in Biochemistry and was a 3-time All-American in track and field. After her four years competing at the collegiate level, Dr. Witter-Davis continued her athletic endeavors on the world stage. She competed professionally as a sprinter, becoming a National Champion in the 100m and 200m as well as competing at the Sydney Olympics (2000) and World Championships (2001). Dr. Witter-Davis became the interim sprints and hurdler coach at the University of Tennessee.

The realm of athletics and fitness opened the door to chiropractic. Dr. Witter-Davis graduated from Southern California University of Health Sciences Cum Laude and was the recipient of the President’s Award. Today, she has merged her knowledge of human biomechanics and chiropractic care to work closely with many elite athletes, weekend warriors and the general public.
