IOC honors Holloszy with science prize

 NEW YORK (AP) -- Dr. John Holloszy has been awarded the highest honor in sports science, a $500,000 prize presented by the International Olympic Committee.

 The IOC Medical Commission chose Holloszy for his contributions to the science of enhanced athletic performance. He will receive a gold medal during the opening ceremony of the IOC's annual meeting at the Sydney Games next month.

 "Dr. Holloszy's research on endurance exercise has had a tremendous impact on athletic competition," said Lenny Krayzelburg, a world champion swimmer and U.S. Olympic hopeful. "By incorporating his findings on muscle development into training programs, we can naturally maximize our performance."

 The award's full name is the IOC Olympic Prize on Sports Sciences endowed by Pfizer.
