World Triathlon Championships

EP worked with the winning athletes…Triathlon

The World Championships were held in Hamburg, Germany last weekend, 1st & 2nd September for the Elite and Age Group Athletes.  Kim Ingleby, Head Coach was asked to be part of the support staff for the GB Athletes for the second year running.  Kim was offering sports massage and Sports psychology/NLP for the days running up to the race.

Over the four days leading up to the race Kim massaged over 80 athletes, preparing them for the race. She also helped a few of the athletes hoping to medal, working with them and her NLP skills. Kim wwas part of a team of 4 therapists and two bike mechanics, as well as the team managers Ian Pettitt and Malcolm Westwood.

Whilst the week was challenging and hard work, it was so rewarding on race day seeing over 40 GB athletes win medals in their age group in the Sprint & Olympic distances.  EP would like to congratulate the whole squad – especiallly Sophie Whitworth (Silver), Clive Weston (Silver) Danielle Stewart (Bronze) & Mark Hirsh (Silver).  Apparently the athletes have said; “Kim is fantastic, I could not have done it without her – she is a miracle worker…..” We can’t argue with that!

See you all in Vancouver 08 or on the Gold Coast 09 and Happy winter training.
