Human Tecar specialists Cristian Martinelli and Luca Antenucci got back home energized and delighted with adidas’ first edition of the Boost Boston Games, on June 17 and 18. It’s always great to work with the best: with the German multinational as with the top track & field athletes in the world.
It’s even better to work with the best in a city like Boston, cradle of sports and culture, on the occasion of a double debut: the Games themselves and the first US “street meet” ever. The latter took up the second day of the event, Saturday, June 18.
It was thrilling to witness the crowds’ enthusiastic participation as they lined the elevated, specially constructed track in Charles Street to cheer on their favorites (in the words of Tori Bowie, winner of the women’s 100m in 11.03, it was “very exciting”), even though the street track, with its inevitable bounces and slight instability, prevented competing athletes from showing quite the same power as a regular track.
Yohan Blake, in particular, was unhappy with his sterling silver 10.23 seconds in the men’s 100m, which he attributed to the nature of the track. Nevertheless, the cheering crowds gave most of the athletes and spectators far more than a bounce or two took away – particularly since Human Tecar treatment was at hand before and after the races to smooth over discomfort, alleviate fatigue and maximize performance.
The Boston event was a further milestone in the journey we have undertaken alongside adidas, whose attention to the prevention of injury and alleviating stress and fatigue in its athletes is truly exemplary; an especially crucial milestone in view of the Rio Olympics, where Human Tecar treatment will once again be included in the German multinational’s hospitality area.
