Steve Backley. World, European Champion and Olympic Medallist

Whilst I was competing in many of the major championships and during training camps, I always found that Jackie’s understanding of my event, being a former javelin thrower, was an undeniable factor in assisting my recovery from the various niggles that are part and parcel of an international athletes day to day life. I vividly remember that she still retained the power of a thrower which she put to good use when I required joint manipulations and my regular soft tissue work! Thanks for the help, it was always appreciated.
