Hendon physiotherapist to work with Maldives’ Olympic team
A Hendon physiotherapist has been selected by the Maldives Olympic Committee as the team’s lead physiotherapist.
Umana Noordeen, BMI The garden Hospital’s senior physiotherapist, will live and work alongside the Maldives’ athletes in the Olympic Village.
The physiotherapist, who was born in the Maldives, said: “It is a fantastic honour to be selected by my home country for this position at the biggest sporting event ever witnessed in London.
“My family back at home would have been routing for our athletes anyway but knowing that I am part of the team will only increase their sense of excitement.
“The Maldives are only a small group of islands but their team for the 2012 Olympics Games is one of the strongest they have ever produced.
“Anything can happen at this international level and I hope the team are able to take their first ever Olympic medal right here in my home city, London.”
Umana graduated as a qualified physiotherapist in 2004 and has previously worked for VB Addu FC, a professional Maldivian football club based in the capital Malé.
Kim McRae, The Garden Hospital’s executive director, commented: “We are absolutely thrilled that Umana has been selected for this position at the 2012 Olympics.
“Being an Australian myself I understand the ties Umana has with both her home country and the UK.
“Umana’s work at The Garden Hospital is exceptional and the athletes from the Maldivian team will be in excellent hands under her care.”
