Dr. Michael Spino was a driving force during the build-up to the Atlanta 1996 Centennial Olympic Games. He served as a coach, was an event host organizer for numerous national teams, and researched issues such as heat and humidity and jet lag during the Olympic periods. In 1984, Spino directed the Atlanta Pre-Olympic training camp for 100 athletes and coaches at Emory University, which proved to be a precursor to Atlanta's eventual successful summer Olympic bid.
He is the author of six books on the mental and physical aspects of sport, coached over a hundred All-American runners at Georgia Tech and Life University, where his teams won 12 national cross country and track championships, and he was chosen NAIA national Coach of the Year three times.
Dr. Spino formulated his theories of sport and health at the famed Esalen Sports Center in California and is a fellow of OPUS NOVUM. Presently, he is a collaborator with Lille2 University in France developing master's degree consortiums and sport tourism research projects.
