Exciting 2010 News!

Here's a bit of fun news to share with you. Clinic Director Tyler Dumont will be an Olympic Torch bearer prior to the commencement of the 2010 Olympic Games. Tyler was unaware that he was nominated by the UBC Faculty of Medicine Department of Physical Therapy to carry the torch on behalf of the department. Tyler feels very proud and honoured that his colleagues at UBC chose to acknowledge his dedication to the Department of PT in this way. He is a bit worried about tripping and falling, so he's already started practising running with his arm up in the air carrying a 5 lb weight (OK, I'm joking)!

Tyler is also excited to be a part of the medical team at the Men's Hockey venue (GM Place) throughout the Olympics. Let's hope his wife Kelly, who is due February 24 with their 3rd child, can hold off on delivering the baby until after the gold medal game!
