This Saturday night, Lakeside Stadium will see the countries best runners as they look to secure the National 10k Championship, as well as Olympic Qualifying times for the 2016 Olympics. In preparation for this, members from Melbourne Track Club have been up at Falls Creek with our very own Richard Squires training for this. Along side these athletes, Richard has been doing remedial and sports massage, managing the athletes soft tissue needs and assisting in athlete recovery, with the help of Athletics Australia and South Yarra Spine and Sports Medicine.

From all here at South Yarra Spine and Sports Medicine, we would like to wish all of the athletes competing tomorrow all the best.
