After a five stage process, I was selected to be an official sports massage practitioner at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games.
During the twenty days working there, I treated the world's elite athlete's in the Athletes Village during the Olympic Games and was based at the Olympic Stadium during the Paralympics..
I providing pre event, mid event and post event sports massage to the athletes and met some wonderful people.
I was lucky enough to get my hands (and teeth) on to a gold medal and was given the medalists podium flowers by a Chinese athlete as a thank you present for her treatment I provided
to prepare her for the 400m event she was participating in.
On Saturday 08th September, I was personally invited as a guest of the South African coach to spend some time with Oscar Pistorius shortly before he won his gold medal.
It was a pleasure to treat the world's elite athlete's at the most high profile sporting event this country has ever seen and I was pleased to be part of such a wonderful medical team.
