I am really pleased that we are now sponsoring Jamie Bedwell, an aspiring 17-year-old triathlete from Uckfield.
Jamie is aiming for selection for the Olympic Games in the next ten years and currently trains around 20 hours a week (typically clocking up over 9.5km swimming, 150km cycling and 40km running) all while studying for his A Levels at Sussex Downs College in Eastbourne.
Abby says of Jamie: "Jamie shows dedication to his future and his sport that I really admire, and I'm delighted that I can support his training and events programme for 2016 with sports massage and advice."
Jamie says: "I love what I am doing and I am 100% committed to achieving my ambition of representing my country as a triathlete and am hugely grateful to Sort Your Sport and my other sponsors for all their support and enabling me to follow my dream.”
Jamie is currently racing for Great Britain in the British Super Series, a group of races that take place all over the UK and hopes to represent Great Britain in the European and World Championships.
You can follow his steps to achieve his sporting goals on Jamie's Facebook page and Jamie's Twitter feed.

Wow! What an amazing show so far! And great results from Team GB. Awesome!
With some fantastic results already in the cycling, in the road races, time trials and on the track, we want to get behind Team GB and you in your pursuit of sporting excellence - whatever your sport and at whatever level to choose to enjoy it!
You'll have seen Rocktape worn by many of the athletes during the Games including the (surely soon-to-be knight of the realm) Bradley Wiggins, but it isn't just for elite athletes. You can use Rocktape so support your body during training and in events of any kind! It can also be used to help with non-sporting injuries too such as neck and low back pain.

Well, at last some time for some well earned rest! And I mean me, not just all those who have been taking part in both the Brighton Marathon and London Virgin Marathon these past two weeks.
I'm delighted that all of my clients, who I have been treating for an array of problems over the last few months, made it round - some of them in really impressive times, and have given us great feedback on the treatments they received.
Here is the latest feedback I received just this morning from Virgin London Marathon runner Tristan:
"Thanks for [your] good work last week, neither of my niggles played up in London. Will mention you to other runners I know, and will be back ahead of [my] next big event in a month or so." Tristan D.
The treatments we provided included included manipulation, sports massage and remedial exercises for the classic runners injuries such as ITB sydrome, runners knee, snapping hip, shin splints, piriformis sydrome and plantar faciitis as well as numerous neck, shoulder and back complaints. And some had more than one of the above when they first came to see me!
I also have had great feedback on the Rocktape fittings that I did. All of those that I taped up for their runs reported that they didn't even have the slightest problem with the areas they expected to hold them up. Great news!
If you have a big event coming up, whatever your discipline be it running, cycling, triathlon, or even Ironman, take a look at our Marathon Survival Packs. They are well suited to all types of endurance event comprising sports therapy treatments, personal training plans and performance coaching for when your motivation starts slipping!
We also offer large discounts when you buy any of our treatment packs with up to 25% off the usual hourly rate for individual treatments. Visit our online shop where you can also find gift vouchers for all of our treatments and self-help products.

The Meridian team were on hand at SRS Event's Springtime Classic Cycling Sportive on 17 April. The team massaged cyclists with a range of problems from tight hamstrings, low back pain, stiff necks and shoulders and pulled quads. The hilly course had tested a lot of riders beyond their normal limits and riders were very grateful to have the option of massage at the comfortable event HQ in Burgess Hill.
