Acupuncture USA Runs to Clean Olympic Gold Medal

Acupuncture helped Team USA race to gold at the 2012 London Summer Olympics.

In the women’s 4X400m relay, track and field runner Dee Dee Trotter kicked off the lead in an amazing first leg and separated herself from the pack. Distancing herself from Russia, Jamaica and Great Britain, her breathtaking lead made it an easy night for the relay team. Team USA ran to gold, Russia took silver and Jamaica took bronze. It was the third fastest 4X400m women’s USA relay time ever!

Dee Dee is known for using acupuncture as part of her training and even received acupuncture treatments track-side after sprints.
