We’re Off To Hawaii!
ETPA in partnership with Physiohealth are thrilled to be sending a Physiotherapist to Hawaii to support their athletes racing in the 2013 Hawaii Ironman World Championships. ETPA and Physiohealth have enjoyed a six year partnership and they are proud to announce that for the first time they will be sending a Physiotherapist to Hawaii for the 2013 Ironman World Champs. The Physio will be on hand to provide important hands on support in the crucial week leading into race day and the days following. ETPA founder, Mat Tippett, said “the supply of a Physiotherapist to athletes racing in Hawaii is unique for our sport” and “this is the first time any coaching organisation has been capable of providing such a high standard of support at an international level.” This unique opportunity has been six months in the planning. ETPA have seven athletes racing in Hawaii this year and they will be treated to the highest standard of support available at no extra cost. Justin McEvoy, Physiohealth owner, agrees this is a significant step forward in the support mechanisms available to age-group Triathletes. Both Justin and Mat believe this support is a reflection of the growth of triathlon. “It all starts with our screening program that identifies an athlete’s strengths and weakness and progresses through to injury prevention and management, to the vital support offered on race day . This support will assist ETPA athletes to race to their potential on the big island in October. Both organisations wish all athletes racing in Hawaii the best of luck.
