Age Grouper of the week
Andrew Black is our Age Grouper this week. In the South Island Half Ironman he was in the front pack on the bike when 3km from the end his chain broke. Instead of calling it a day he ran to the bike/run transition and then went on to finish the race. Well done Andrew.

The virtual sports injury therapist has been designed to ask the same questions a therapist would and demonstrate the same tests to help you identify your sports injury.
