    The Hagermans: another Olympic team

      of speed skater Eric Heiden. However,

      Gene "Topper" Hagerman, '68, find
      these activities commonplace.
         The brothers are two of the top
      sports physiologists in the United
      States. Topper is the first sports
      physiologist to be employed by the
      U.S. Olympic Committee. He is the
      director of the research laboratory at
      the U.S. Olympic Training Center in
      Squaw Valley, Calif., a center which the
      Hagermans set up last summer.
