As proud sponsors of England Touch, whilst playing for Wales Touch you could say Kate-Anne and I felt a little torn last weekend at the European Championships.
As it turned out SPORTTAPE did a lot better than we did, it lasted the distance and made it to several finals with the imperious England squad! Whilst we finished one place short of a bronze medal and broken, however that didn't take the edge of a brilliant few days.
I'm always continually amazed by the people behind the players. Those people that keep the event running and the players on their feet with unwavering support and commitment. Who, without any financial reward devote hundreds of hours but for nothing other than a love of sport.
In particular this goes for the medical teams. I can only speak for the Wales and England camps both of whom received medical support far in advance of our amateur status! For four days we were treated like professional athletes.
On one occasion I remember searching for my team members only to find 6 of the 12 receiving treatment. So although my pride has been dented by body is still in one piece thanks largely to the aforementioned!
If you'd like to give a shout-out for your medical team get in touch! We'd be happy to send them some SPORTTAPE to try.
In the meantime I'm off to pick a scab...
