High Road to the Olympics.......Geoffrey Bishop
Flagstaff, Arizona, sits atop the world, especially this year as we work our way nearer the 2008 Olympics in China. Many of the world’s fastest athletes utilize the hypoxic conditions of this high altitude city to produce more red blood cells in which to carry oxygen to their muscles. They train long and hard, get sore, get up, and do it all over again the next morning. Erik Dalton’s Myoskeletal Alignment is the therapy of choice for many training Olympians this year, and I’m honored to play a small part in their success.
Summer is off to a great start! Congrats to the Canada crew on making the Canadian Olympic Triathlon Team!
Vancouver (TC) – Two-time Olympian and 2000 gold medallist Simon Whitfield of Victoria will be joined in Beijing by first-time Olympians and fellow National Team Teck Cominco members Paul Tichelaar of Edmonton, and Colin Jenkins of Hamilton, Ont., for the 2008 Olympic Games.
Whitfield qualified for the team based on 2007 results of a top-8 finish at both a World Cup event and the World Championships, while Tichelaar and Jenkins were nominated to the team for submission to the Canadian Olympic Committee late Sunday night by Triathlon Canada’s selection committee.
“Our men’s team in Beijing will be among the strongest of any country,” said Triathlon Canada’s Executive Director Alan Trivett. “The addition of Jenkins and Tichelaar adds the opportunity to race as a team with Whitfield; however Tichelaar has been very consistent on the World Cup Circuit over the past year and is equally capable of producing a top result for Canada on his own.”

Notice the difference between first, second and third effort of hip extension......the first is limited, the second is not bad after some hip flexor stretches and the third is pretty darn good and clear after having done muscle spindle work for G.MAX. THIS IS MYOSKELETAL......
