Lynsie is taking part in Tokyo 2021!
Lynsie has spent the last several years working towards the achievement of a post graduate Sports Physiotherapy Diploma (SPD). This process included many hours of formal and informal study and mentorship, on field work, and both written and practical examinations. Lynsie successfully completed her SPD in 2021. Her hard work in the sporting community has not gone unnoticed. She has been selected by Badminton Canada as a Team Therapist to support the athletes as they gear up for their Olympic journey. Lynsie will be traveling to Japan in July to be available to the athletes.
Lynsie’s duties will include assessing and treating injuries as the athletes prepare for the Olympics, providing education and opinion regarding participation in competition, and keeping the athletes in optimal shape while they realize their Olympic dreams.
