Leonora, or Leo as her friends call her, was referred to The Micheli Center by Dr. Stein of the Division of Sports Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital for recurring leg injuries. After a full injury prevention evaluation she started the basketball pre-season class to prepare for her favorite sport. The trainers and Leonora are most impressed with the significant upper body strength gains she has made so far.
Leonora’s favorite basketball players are Ray Allen and Jessica Washington, a stand-out UNC player. Leo’s greatest sports accomplishment was playing basketball in Denmark where her team won the Nordic Championship.
While training at The Micheli Center, Leo has learned that putting hard work and dedication into injury prevention will give her a competitive edge in any sport she participates in. Based on the hard work she’s put in so far we see many more championships in Leo’s future.
