It was fantastic to hear again this week from decathlete Tom Chandler who some of you may remember was treated by Professor Mackay with Internal Brace surgery to repair a ruptured ACL. Tom was delighted that this method allowed him to fast track his rehab and to be back competing ore quickly than a conventional repair would have done. It was great therefore to get the following update from him.
‘Just thought I’d get in touch to let the Mackay clinic know how I got on in my last decathlon of the season out in Woerden, Holland. I am now not only fully recovered from my injury but now bettering all of my marks from before injury and have been able to progress seemlessly since the operation.

I have attached some footage of a few of my personal bests from the weekend including my pole vault and Javelin.
Just wanted to say thanks again for all of your work as it’s allowed me to enjoy more moments like these.
