The Canadian Wheelchair Rugby Team have just completed the second of their three pre-London 2012 training camps at the University of Leeds before travelling to London to take part in the Wheelchair Rugby Paralympic Test events held at the Olympic Park.
The team held their first training camp in August where they were able to get a feel for the facilities available to them and get used to the campus, in particular Storm Jameson Court – the hotel-style accommodation that has been made available to them.
Andy Van Neutegem, performance director for Canadian Wheelchair Rugby, has been particularly pleased with what he’s seen so far “Our preparation for the Paralympic Games and the Test Match could not be any better as a result of the services and support from the University of Leeds. Our accommodation was exceptional and the catering and food were superb! Above all, the catering and accommodation staff could not do enough to make Leeds our home away from home. Their attention to detail and level of service is beyond comparison!”
The Events, Sports, Catering and Accommodation teams are all looking forward to welcoming them back again later this year as they make their final preparations for the Paralympic Games in August.
