Physiotherapy Links physiotherapist, Alex Beck, and his 4x400m relay team has made Australia proud with 7th place overall at the World Relay Championships on the 11th and 12th of May in Osaka, Japan. An awe-inspiring result that has qualified the group for September’s World Championships in Doha, Qatar later this year with their sights set on Olympic qualification.
During the event, Alex’s Osaka performance returned a personal best for the season; an impressive 46.17s result that now ranks him 57th in the world.
Since graduating from Bond University with a Doctor of Physiotherapy in 2014, Alex has continued to expand his expertise of recreational and elite distance running biomechanics through his own personal application and research in the field. Ongoing, his keen interest has helped him not only prevent and manage his own running related injuries, but also with the range of athletes he treats on a regular basis; from developing juniors through to Olympic-level athletes.
As a physiotherapist by day, and elite-athlete by morning and night - we can’t wait to see what’s next for Alex and his team as they take on Qatar! Congratulations, and good luck Alex!
