Paralympic research clinic was a success

Members of Dr. Krassioukov’s Paralympic research team had a great (and productive) time at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London. The Research Clinic was located in the Fitness Centre right in the buzzing Athletes’ Village. The team tested over 60 athletes from Columbia, Canada, United States, Italy, Algeria, South Africa, Australia, Brazil, Jamaica, Sweden and Turkey. “It was great getting to know the athletes and hear their amazing stories (and trade a few pins!),” said team member Jacquelyn Cragg. “We had several medal winners in the Clinic! We also got a chance to see wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby, athletics, and some swimming. Overall, it was an amazing experience!”
