The U.S. Olympic Complex in Colorado Springs is the flagship training center for the U.S. Olympic Committee and the Olympic Training Center programs. USA Swimming and USA Shooting have their national headquarters on complex. Over 15 other member organizations, as well as two international sports federations and the USOC headquarters, are also located in Colorado Springs, Colo.
The Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center rests on a 35-acre complex located near downtown Colorado Springs. The center has sport venues and support facilities for fencing, gymnastics, judo, shooting, swimming, taekwondo, weightlifting and wrestling.
