We’re proud that our coaching platform, VDOT O2, helps runners of all abilities in pursuit of their full potential. We’d like to take a moment to highlight athletes that are using it at the highest level in this tribute video. Congratulations to the more than 45 runners who have qualified for the 2020 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials.

The story of VDOT actually started during Dr. Daniels’ Olympic pursuits. 60 years ago Jack won his second Olympic medal in the Modern Pentathlon. He excelled at every event except one – running! The motivation behind Jack’s commitment to a life of research was actually a lack of proper coaching for running performance.

Fast forward to 2020, a methodology based on an Olympic pursuit and sound scientific principles lives on. Today, we’re seeing athletes all over the world, from beginners to elites working with coaches to pursue their full potential and reach their goals.
