UCLan Sports Therapy Students Feedback On Their Experiences At Event Massage
“The Ironman event in Bolton was a fantastic experience. From the organisers and athletes down to the security personnel everyone was really helpful and great. This was my first event which I covered and I would certainly do it again. The athletes were really wonderful, being really polite and talkative. The massage experience was also good, it was a bit tiring but that was all part of the experience, hopefully with being at more events it's something I’ll get used too. There were athletes from all over the world and that gives you more of an experience. Being a part of the ironman was a privilege. Overall the event was a success and hopefully I can be a part of that again”.
“I would like to say a massive thank you to the organisers for allowing this type of opportunity to be presented to us as students. I found the event had a different type of feeling to it because of the amount of athletes who needed treating. Working with these types of athletes, at such high pace really benefited my timing skills & pushed me physically. The athletes were lovely people which made it so much more enjoyable because they showed an interest in us as people and students. I will be trying to push to do it again next year”
The staff would like to congratulate the students who attended these events, as their professionalism was outstanding throughout the long and tiring weekend!
