National Medical Classifier Certificate for BQ’s Thorpy
Alan Thorp was presented with his National Medical Classifier certificate by IBD Head Classifier, Sheila Corcoran, at the recent Australian Open.
Alan attended training with Sheila in Adelaide during May. Alan has been a technical classifier for the IBD (International Bowlers with a Disability) and is now qualified to do the medical component as well.
Alan assisted Sheila at the Australian Open where they classified many new disability bowlers.
The classification team consisted of Alan Thorp, Bruce Walker from New Zealand and Sheila Corcoaran. On June 18, at the Mermaid Beach Bowls Club, 14 bowlers were classified prior to them competing in the Australian Open. Players in attendance came from all over Australia, Thailand and one player from India.
Congratulations Thorpy and thank you for all of your hard work!
