In 2001 my family and I moved to Scotland which made the logistics of travelling to many National events difficult and so I was delighted to be asked to work with Scottish Athletics and have covered all national and domestic events, including warm weather training camps, Celtic Games and Loughborough International meetings for 15 years.
I am an avid curler and so covering the Senior World Championships in 2007 and Women’s Junior World Championship in 2009 was an honour rather than hard work!
I run the clinic with the help of my wife who has been qualified 35 years. The clinic is based in Cumbria which means we are able to provide a service to elite athletes who are sometimes unable to travel to the SIS or EIS centres; clients includes athletes from track and field, cycling, triathlon, tennis and cycling.
Running a general practice means I see a wide range of conditions and clients and this has meant my range of skills has increased to allow me to ensure everyone reaches their full potential.
In my younger days, I was in the national squad for 4 years, competing in 400m and 400m hurdles and was the Junior SCAAA champion. I know how the athlete’s mind works and the all-consuming desire they have to compete and to be the very best they can.
