Medway physiotherapist Gareth Marlow is looking forward to getting to grips with some of the top athletes in the world at the Commonwealth Games.

Gareth, 27, who works for Medway Community Healthcare (MCH), is travelling to Scotland today, where he will be part of a medical team looking after the competitors in the pistol, rifle and shotgun events.

Gareth volunteered his services at the Olympic Games in London in 2012 which is where he said he “got the bug”.

He said: “This inspired me to get involved in other sporting events as I wanted to gain more experience of working with professional athletes.

“As I physiotherapist, I will be able to provide therapy for any injuries and also help in improving sporting performances mentally.”

Ironically, Gareth a keen sportsman, played for Medway Rugby Club until two years ago when he had to give up because of injury.

He is based at MCH’s new offices on Gillingham Business Park and lives with wife Katharine, 28, in Bexley.
