Local Medic at Commonwealth Games

Dr Rhodri Martin, 33, Registrar in Sports Exercise Medicine at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital was one of four doctors who accompanied Team Wales to the Commonwealth Games.

He said that it was a fantastic experience being part of the most successful team for Wales in the Commonwealth Games.

When he was there, Rhodri looked after the Welsh athletes, treating and managing injuries to ensure that the athletes performed at their very best. He worked alongside many other healthcare professionals and also back-room staff who look after the athletes.

Staying in the ‘athletes village’, Rhodri rubbed shoulders with athletes from all over the world, sharing the gym and canteen with them.

Reflecting on his experience Rhodri said: “It was a huge honour and privilege to be a part of Team Wales and provide support to athletes that have trained all their lives to represent their country.

“Hopefully the fantastic achievements from so many Welsh athletes will help inspire the people of Wales to get involved in sport.

“Sport is a fantastic way to get physically active, which we know is the single best thing you can do to improve your health.

“Furthermore, I hope that the inspirational Gold medal winning Welsh cyclist Geraint Thomas will inspire more people in Wales to get out on their bikes.

“Cycling is a fantastic way to get active, and Wales is such a fantastic country to enjoy pedalling!”
