2013 Deaflympics Bulgaria

Hello everyone,  from July 20 to August 8 I was in Bulgaria as the Australian Deaflympic Team Physiotherapist.  I had so much fun!  I learnt plenty of Australian Sign Language (Auslan) and made a lot of friends.

My typical day consisted of:

  • 7am – Team Meeting
  • 8am – Breakfast at the hotel
  • 9-11 am – Physiotherapy with tennis/swimmers/athletics athletes
  • 11-12pm – Nap!
  • 12-1pm – Lunch at the hotel
  • 1-3pm – Physiotherapy with the swimmers
  • 3-7pm – Free time, I typically explored the city.
  • 7-8pm – Dinner at the hotel
  • 8-10pm – Physiotherapy with the swimmers and tennis players
  • 10pm-late – Bulgarian Nightlife.  Imagine a street filled with gypsies, mafia and 2000+ Deaf people.  It was ridiculously fun times.

Check out some of my pictures.

Tennis Team

Top Left Jamie: One of the most hillarious guys I’ve ever met.  Every single time I was around him I was laughing.

Top Centre Stephen: Top bloke.  The veteran of the team.

Top Right David:  Team manager.  Kept the team out of trouble.

Bottom Left John: This guy needs to write a book or blog.  Loves the inspirational quotes.

Bottom Centre Me

Bottom Right Glen:  Absolute machine.  Played probably 8 games of tennis in 10 days.  He did not appreciate the cold showers I put him through hahha.

Amy Mills

Amy Mills – javelin gold medalist.  Was coming 4th up until her last throw.  Smashed her personal best by 3 metres to win gold.  Top effort.

I definitely miss Bulgaria.  The next Deaflympics will be in Turkey 2017.

I’ve got some big blog posts coming up so stay tuned.

Do skoro (bye in Bulgarian),
