Fitzgerald Mosley comes back to USOC
COLORADO SPRINGS — The U.S. Olympic Committee is hiring 1984 Olympic gold medal hurdler Benita Fitzgerald Mosley to a new position, chief of organizational excellence.
Fitzgerald Mosley, who won the gold in 100 meter hurdles at the Los Angeles Games, will move to the USOC after spending four years as chief of sport performance at USA Track and Field, which took home 29 medals from last year’s Olympics.
Fitzgerald Mosley will oversee athlete career programs and the athlete ombudsman office. She will also take over many of the responsibilities of outgoing chief administrative officer Kirsten Volpi. Among Volpi’s duties were running the USOC’s diversity program and strategic planning.
