With the opening ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympic Games less than a week away, we’d like to extend a sincere GOOD LUCK to all of our customers who will be competing at the summer games.
The English Institute of Sport works with over 90 percent of Olympic sports in the UK. Represented collectively as Great Britain (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) during the Olympic Games, Great Britain has been present every year since the first modern Olympic Gamess in 1896 and has been using Presagia Sports since 2002 to manage athlete health. While they have never gone home empty handed, their most successful year awarded them with 136 medals, 55 of which were gold medals! Here’s hoping that stride continues.
While Ireland’s first official Olympic debut was in 1924, Irish athletes have been competitors since 1896, making this their 20th summer Olympics appearance officially. Since 2009, the Irish Sports Council, responsible for the development of sport within the country, has trusted Presagia Sports to manage the health of their athletes. Ireland has some strong prospects for gold medal winners this year that we will be watching closely and eagerly!
The Brazilian Boxing, Weightlifting, Fencing and Taekwondo Confederations are also heading to the Games for the first time since implementing Presagia Sports earlier this year. This will be an exciting year for them as the next time they compete at the summer Olympic Games, they will be competing as the hosts. The 2016 Olympics Games will take place in Rio de Janeiro, marking the first ever South American hosted Olympics.
Last but not least, to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), a valued customer since 2006, we support you in your quest to maintain that athletes keep playing the game true!
The Olympic Games will be taking place from July 27 to August 12. Follow us on twitter @presagia as we’ll be posting live updates as our customers show the world what they’re made of.
