Ali gets Paralympic call-up

A Stafford woman is celebrating after being selected for the Beijing Olympic Games.

But instead of taking to the track and field herself, sports physiotherapist Ali Glover will be providing vital hands-on support to athletes.

That’s because Ali has been appointed lead physio for the Great Britain Paralympic Team, meaning she will be ensuring the muscles and joints of some of the best disabled competitors in the world are in tip-top condition. Most of the time, Ali works at Achilles Heal physiotherapy and sports injury clinic in Millbank.

But she is also a physiotherapist with UK Athletics and has been working at Loughborough’s High Performance Centre, preparing athletes.

Ali will be joined by colleague Brett Nagata, who has been selected by Team Canada to be the physiotherapist with the Canadian wheelchair basketball team
