Day 1 – The ‘Doc’ report from the Olympic Village. London 2012

Our Clinical Lead, Dr Graeme Wilkes was selected as the GB Hockey Doctor. Graeme will be sending us updates and photos of life at the Olympics.

A room with a view
As I wake up and look out of the window, there is the Olympic stadium in all its glory.  I arrived yesterday with the GB Men; The GB Ladies come back in today having had three days here last week. The Athlete village is awesome, with the sunny weather you could be anywhere in the world.

My first visit to the Dining Hall was an experience. It takes a full 3 minutes to walk end to end and it’s a square! MacDonald’s in the corner which is free but no chips!!

Picture of view from our apartment attached. The GB Headquarters is naturally placed with best outlook. We have unique access to our own Performance Centre/ Medical Quarters which is huge - no other nation will have such a facility - another advantage of home nation.

Today there are three training sessions and I will get my first experience of the Hockey stadium with its pink and blue pitch!

Can’t wait!!!!
