PRESS RELEASE Ultra Sports Clinic helps save the Rhinos.

London, United Kingdom, January 24, 2018 - Ultra-modern and super sophisticated treatment facility, Ultra Sports Clinic, based in London is excited and honoured to announce that it will be supporting Save the Rhino International during the 2018 London Marathon.

The multi-discipline team at USC is made up of physiotherapists, chiropractors, doctors and more. They will be providing their services to those representing them in the lead up to and on the day of the marathon. Each year they choose a charity and offer their medical services pro-bono.

“Running the London Marathon can be physically demanding, not only on the day but in the lead up to it too”, says Ashleigh Wienand, clinical director and lead physiotherapist at Ultra Sports Clinic.

“So many factors can affect your race; the weather, the temperature, the clothing and footwear you wear and any niggles or injuries that you may have picked up along the way.

Many of those running for Save the Rhino International will be doing so in one of their iconic, 8kg rhino suits. By adding this additional load, it creates further strain on the body during such endurance and this is something we will help them prepare for and then be on hand to provide specific treatment during and after the race. We’ll be offering those services to all Save the Rhino runners too,” added Ashleigh.

Choosing the charity was easy. Both Ashleigh and her business partner, Tasja Botha were born and raised in South Africa. Ashleigh also grew up on a game farm so experienced the issues around poaching first hand. The plight of the Rhinoceros is very close to their hearts.

The vision of the charity is to have all five species thriving in the wild for future generations by collaborating with partners to support endangered Rhinos in Africa. The team at Ultra Sports Clinic is honoured to be part of that support.
