Dr Gaylene McKay has been the Opals (Australian Women’s Basketball Team) Physiotherapist for 7 years and travelled with them many times for camps and tournaments. But this year she had the privilege of supporting them in Tokyo for the 2020 Olympics!

 

Now that she’s back in Australia we asked her to spend some of her hotel quarantine time telling us a bit about the experience . . . .

Dr Gaylene McKay - Physiotherapist with the Melbourne Boomers

16 February 2021

Alphington Sports Medicine Clinic's Managing Director Dr Gaylene McKay is no stranger to the rigorous demands of professional basketball – she played over 300 games in the WNBL and has been a team Physiotherapist since the early 1990’s when she retired.
