Clinic Sponsors Young Athlete
Nick Meek is a young up-and coming athlete, who has only been training and competing for 12 months, but has already represented Queensland in his age group. What makes his achievements even more remarkable, is that he received a debilitating injury to his ankle in a soccer tournament late last year, which required extensive rehabilitation and 6 months to heal.
Despite this, Nick has won 2 medals at QLD state level (1 silver, 1 bronze), and 4 at Regional level for MetWest (2 gold, 2 silver) in the last 12 months. His highlight was representing the QLD Heat team in Perth in March, placing 7th in Australia in the 400m, after only 5 months of training and still recovering from injury.
Nick currently competes in the 100m, 200m and 400m. After struggling with niggling injuries for a while, he came to our clinic for therapeutic massage, and we were able to sort his injuries out. Nick continues to receive regular massage treatments from us, and he has now remained injury-free for many months.
Nick is only 14, and while he is relatively new to running, he is being looked at as a promising young athlete with potential.
We have decided to support Nick in his endeavours to one day represent Australia, and are providing him a free massage roughly every 2 weeks, plus regular nutrition advice from our naturopath.
