Being in both Oslo and Stockholm made it possible for us to provide treatment continuity for athletes participating in both events, which is both an opportunity and a challenge for recovery.
Even here in Sweden we saw numerous champions who achieved incredible results. We’re pleased to mention Ben Meité, second in the 100m; Francine Niyonsaba , first in the 800m; Ivet Lalova, fourth in the 200m; Yasmani Copello, third in the 400m hurdle; Baboloki Thebe, second in the 400m; Sergey Shubenkov, second in the 110m hurdle; Soufiane El Bakkali, first in the 3,000m steeplechase; Yunier Pérez, fourth in the 100m; and Aurel Manga, fourth in the 110m hurdle.
What role does the Wintecare specialist play in an event like this? To keep any skeletal muscle problems at bay, but also, and perhaps most importantly, to have a positive influence on the biomechanics of the athletes. The Wintecare programme for activation and recovery is designed to be a true pre-race ‘fine tuning’, just like a pit crew in Formula 1.
