This year SASMA was involved again in the 2019 Santos Tour Down Under (TDU). The Sports Trainers worked on both the Men’s and Women’s Cycling Events assisting the Race Doctors and SA Ambulance Service (SAAS) in the medical coverage for the cyclists.
SASMA have been working hard to get the 2019 courses underway. The calendar is filling up fast and we already have many great events, courses and workshops scheduled.
