The London Olympic Games will be held this summer and in late August the Paralympic Games will follow. A sports massage therapist in Panama City Beach will be there to represent the Emerald Coast on the international stage.
Lee Thompson will get his third opportunity to work with athletes at the Paralympics Games, the others coming in 2004 in Athens, Greece and again in 2008 in Beijing. Lee was handpicked through a selection process by the London Games organizing committee based on his qualifications and experience in massage therapy since 1997.
Thompson is a specialist volunteer for the London Games meaning he'll have to provide his own travel and accommodations. To assist with donations to help Thompson cover expenses, phone Thompson at 850-628-7633.
