|Macau Red Cross, the Strongest Backup |
Macau Red Cross medical staff provides strong supports to athletes
The Macau delegation of this year’s College Athletic Games
was comprised of outstanding athletes, coaches and staff, in addition Macau
Red Cross (MRC) dispatched a strong medical service support team.
A team of four MRC medical staff members accompanied the Macau
delegation to Hangzhou. Making the best precautionary measures, and gathering
precise information are the key of success in any operation. Before departure,
the MRC medical team made reference to the data of first-aid material consumption,
and athlete injury statistics of the last National Athletic Games. Because of
the distant location, the first-aid items couldn’t be easily supplemented from
the MRC headquarters, they had to store all the supplies in a huge suitcase.
In the athletic arena, all Macau athletes strived their very
best in each event, while the MRC medical team stood by readily to serve them.
According to Ao Weng Kin, a member of the team, that the massage cream, cold
spray and wound cleansings were usually the fastest consumed items in any sport,
and they had sufficiently stocked up all the supplies to meet the need of the
14-day long duration. These four diligent medical personnel become the strongest
backup and anonymous heroes in the hearts of the Macau’s athletes.
As each event was uniquely scheduled, and so as the MRC medical
staffs were set for different assignments to meet the actual need. Though these
devoted members didn’t have sufficient rest, they meticulously provided a highly
integrated professional service. Here, we simply want to express our sincerity
to them: Thank you.
