Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Bernard Cahill, specializing in sports medicine and research for 20 years, put Peoria on the Olympic Games map in 1992 after years of dedicated effort to make central Illinois a part of the U.S. Olympic training scene. The culmination of years of planning and dedication was climaxed last spring when the United States Olympic weightlifting team was selected during competition with several other nations in Peoria.
