MARSHALL, MO -- Missouri Valley College Alumna Carrie (Harmon) Moore ‘99 has been selected to serve as an athletic trainer for the United States' women's wrestling team at the 2012 Olympic Games that begin on June 27 in London, England.

Moore was selected by Coach Terry Steiner of USA Wrestling and the USA Wrestling Medical Committee as a possible candidate to travel to London with the USA wrestling teams. In March, she was contacted by the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) and was told that she would be a representative of the USA medical staff in London.

To be considered as an Olympic level athletic trainer, an individual must complete an internship at one of the Olympic Training Center's Sports Medicine Facilities. Moore did her internship in the summer of 2010 at the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center; working primarily with the men's and women's wrestling teams.

In preparation for the Olympic games, Moore will travel to the World Cup in Japan at the end of May, and another tour to Canada in late June. During these tours, Moore will be present at all team workouts and be responsible for practice preparations and injury evaluations and treatments.

Moore's official title for the 2012 Olympics will be Head Athletic Trainer for the women's wrestling team.

"I really owe a huge part of this opportunity to Mike Machholz, MVC head men's wrestling coach, the MVC wrestling athletes, the MVC athletic training department, and my husband for their support."

Carrie, a native of Centerview, Mo., graduated from Missouri Valley College in 1999 with a degree in exercise science with emphasis in athletic training and biology. She then worked as a graduate assistant at Lindenwood University. While earning her master's degree in athletic training at Lindewood Moore worked with the men's wrestling, women's soccer, and softball teams. Upon her graduation from Lindenwood in 2001, Moore joined the Missouri Valley College athletic training staff in 2004 where she worked as an assistant athletic trainer/professor of athletic training until 2009. In May of 2009, she married her husband Jason Moore. They currently reside in Wentzville, Mo. Carrie works as an assistant athletic trainer/associate professor of health and fitness sciences at Lindenwood University in St. Charles.
