wheelAIR at first ever Adaptive Highland Games
So….we travelled the (7 hours!) up to John O’Groats this weekend to support para-athletes at the Mey Cultural and Highland Games. And it was well worth the journey!
We experienced it all – caber tosses, tug of war, haggis and, of course, a tiny bit of rain. And para-athletes from all corners of the earth had travelled to compete.
What ‘The Tank’ thought of the wheelAIR…
Scottish heavy athletics professional, Alex ‘The Tank’ Armor tried out a wheelAIR during the event and he felt it really helped him out. He told us:
“Being a heavy athletics and strongman competitor, almost all of my events are outdoors, in temperatures up to 105 degrees Fahrenheit, and I have had to battle severe overheating due to my MS and other medical issues. This is not so when using wheelAIR!
I was able to focus and compete at the top of my ability throughout the entire day! Truly life and sport changing!”
