Why Olympic Cycling Coach Mike Sayers Deserves A Gold For Organization

"Get a new phone now."

That was the advice from the Tokyo Olympic Committee for Olympic coaches like Mike Sayers.

Sayers is responsible for Team USA's cyclists at the 2020 Olympics. It's the third time he's held the Olympic coaching gig.

But, it's the first time an Olympic organizer suggested a major tech upgrade to handle the six tracking apps needed to comply with COVID-19 safety protocols at the games.

Mike is a former professional racer and World Tour rider. In his more than 30-year career, he's worked as a team director and Olympic coach.

In Tokyo, he'll oversee road, track, BMX and mountain bikers.
