Dr James Nicola offered a position at the Olympics and Paralympics in Rio!

I feel very honoured to be offered a position by both the Rio Olympic and Paralympic Organising Committees. The Rio Olympic and Paralympic Organising Committees only offered about 15 positions, from applicants from around the world, in the medical services area for sports chiropractors in the Olympic/ Paralympic village.

Unfortunately, I could not accept my offered position at the Olympics because of medical issues but I am now recovered and fit to take up my sports chiropractor post in the Paralympic village, working along side other world leading health professionals from many different disciplines. 

I think it will be truly inspiring and humbling working with people who have overcome their disabilities to rise to the most elite level of their chosen sport!
