Wirral physiotherapist to train Olympic athletes
A WIRRAL physiotherapist will work with athletes at the Olympic Village later this year.
Pam Gardiner, from Willaston, is currently helping Great Britain's rowing squad prepare for the games.
But when they actually start she will work with athletes from different sports from all over the world who do not have their own medical support.
No new-comer to helping world class athletes, Pam has worked with the rowing squad since 1997 and helped athletes at the Olympic Games in Athens and Beijing as well as at world championships and training camps.
Looking forward to her trip to London, Pam said: "I am really excited at the challenge of working with different teams of athleetes and medical support personnel as well as the experience of being in the centre of the Village.
"It will be so different from the role that I have had while working with the GB rowing team at previous Olympics.
"The rowing competitionvenue is always away from the main sporting venues and once the rowing events have finished the support team has to return home.
"I have always wanrted to have the chance to experience being part of the Olympic Village.
"Every Olympic Games is different because of the cultuiral and climatic differences but the excitement and passion is always electric.
"So far the build up to London is amazing and I can’t wait to be part of it."
