Dorset Orthopaedic reveals an all-star team of patients, ambassadors and staff to compete in the Superhero Series
From Team GB Para-athletes to Tokyo 2020 hopefuls - plus a prosthetist or two - Dorset Orthopaedic is excited to announce the members of its superstar team competing in an unforgettable day of mass-participation disability sports – the Superhero Series Triathlon
On 19th August 2017, 34 patients, ambassadors and staff from Dorset Orthopaedic’s two full time clinics, Ringwood and Burton-Upon-Trent, will be flying the flag for #teamdorset at the Superhero Series, located at Dorney Lake, Windsor. Each team member will take on one part of a triathlon; swimming up to 750m, cycling up to 20k and running or pushing up to 5k.
Alongside the patients and staff competing are a selection of Dorset Orthopaedic ambassadors hoping to show off their sporting prowess. Para-archery athlete Mark Pattenden will be cycling 10k, whilst para-triathlete Hannah Moore will be tackling a full 20k cycle. They’ll face stiff competition from Team GB para-cyclist Liz Saul, who will also be competing in the 20k cycle. The littlest ambassador with the biggest ambitions, 9 year-old sports fan Rio Woolf, will be running 1k on his 1E93 Runner Junior running blade.
#teamdorset will be cheered on throughout the day by the Dorset Orthopaedic family of patients, friends and supporters. You can shout out your support on social media by following our regular updates over the weekend on Twitter and Facebook.
Dorset Orthopaedic is proud to support the debut event in the Superhero Series, the exciting new mass-participation sports series that gives the UK’s 12 million people with disabilities the chance to find their inner superhero and take on an inspirational challenge. The unique strength of Superhero Series is that it encourages participation by enabling participants to unite with family and friends and do as much or as little as they wish, with as much or as little support as they need.
