TO PLAY CRICKET IS EASY. TO UNDERSTAND THE GAME TAKES TIME.

YEAR 9/10 SPORT MEDICINE SEMINAR


Class working on strapping.

Laura Hodges, a basketballer who has represented Australia in three Olympics winning two silver medals and one bronze medal, came to Wirreanda High to give a talk about sports medicine and injuries on Monday 5th August.
Laura commenced the talk with a few general principles and highlights of injuries that have occurred over the years. Some people will remember Nathan Brown’s horrific broken leg while playing for Richmond, while some may recollect images of the gymnast who crashed into the vault at high speed when he reached the end of his run up.
The class were then given the opportunity to strap their own ankles with most boys appreciating how complex the strapping process is, but also having a greater understanding of how effective strapping can be for sportspeople.
