While the world’s attention was on the Olympics in London, another Olympics was taking place right here at PVMC … in our Physical Medicine Department … and according to staff, it seemed to go over very well. There were four events: Stool scoots (judged on style and smoothness of movement), Balance Board, Basketball and Synchronized Exercises.
Gold and silver medals were awarded in all four events, as well as for best all around “athlete”. “Olympic contenders” commented about how much harder they tried when it was a competition rather than just part of their therapy. Contenders commented that the event was lots of fun and that it should become a regular hospital event.
