NTC Grand Challenge Cup

Henley Royal Regatta 2018 – Grand Challenge Cup

The Australian Eight produces a new record at Henley.

Even if you are just moderately interested in rowing – both these races are superb.

The National Training Centre is THE elite centre for mens Rowing in Australia. When Dr. Hooper rowed for Australia in the 90’s, they were based at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS). Under direction of Australian Rowing a new centre has been established on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra.

The men from the National Training Centre (NTC) Australia made it into the final by beating the British VIII. Well done to the boys from the National Training Centre in Canberra for their fantastic tenacity and skill.

One of the best races we have seen in Australian Rowing.

The Mercantile four competing in the Wyfold Cup are:

  • Stroke – Angus Maloney
  • Three – Mitchell Hooper
  • Two – Jack Kelly
  • Bow –  Ben Canham

The four raced superbly today to easily win their first round. They flew off the start and settled down well many, many lengths in front.

The “Rowing Dynasty” discussion at 3.50 by the commentators is very generous to Dr. Hooper and the family. Much appreciated.

Ready To Go!

BackPack Checks with Dr. Hooper

Throughout the month of February Dr. Hooper performed free backpack checks for kids returning to school.

Good fun was had by everyone – but there is an important message driving this community work. It is all about Spinal Hygiene.

We all understand the concept of Dental Hygiene. Kids need to be aware of their teeth and brush each day. Kids need to be aware of regular flossing and the concept of preventative maintenance. Kid inherently understand that if you look after your teeth now, you can keep teeth healthier as you grow older.

But, as important as the little bits of bone are in your mouth are (teeth) – how much more important are the little bits of bone in your back (vertebrae)?
