About Michael/Other experience
Michael has always loved sport and developed an early interest in physio as a 12 year old when he fractured his patella and attended physio for rehab.
He played rugby and captained school underage teams and played in representative underage teams for Tasmania. He played at the University Club on Tasmania before playing for Melbourne Uni and then on return to Tasmania played with Associates.
He enjoyed distance running and developed an interest in this whilst in the U.S. on a year long AFS scholarship. He ran 3 marathons and then participated in triathlons in W.A.
