" a complex" refers to Olympic Training Center, but the subject of the main clause is "The Sports Medicine Programs" - a plural noun phrase as you can see.

I picked C. What is wrong in C ?

are geared to enhance athlete's performance and their preparation

enhance and preparation should be parallel? In C, it is not. It should be to enhance and to prepare or enhancing and preparing, etc
