2x Olympic Gold Medalist, 2x World Champion in Gymnastics (Trampoline)
Rosie MacLennan is one of the most successful Olympic athletes in Canadian history. She is dominant in the sport of trampoline, with two Olympic gold medals (London 2012 and Rio 2016), two world championships, and three national championships. While recently competing at the World Cup in Belarus, she crashed and broke her ankle. With the qualifiers for the Tokyo games looming, Rosie needed to recover quickly, and like so many other champions, used iWALK2.0 in her recovery. “Life on crutches was really restrictive – there are a lot of things you can’t do. I couldn’t carry anything, even grocery shopping was quite challenging. Before iWALK, I couldn’t do the day to day things I need to in order to maintain my nutrition for recovery. And it’s been very useful for getting back in the gym. I’m really appreciative – iWALK makes a huge difference. I’ve already recommended it to a member of the Canadian national soccer team who has a foot injury.”
Ronald Forbes is a world class hurdler who had qualified to compete in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. With only fourteen weeks remaining before the games, he suffered a major tear (85%) of his Soleus muscle. His doctors told him he would be on crutches for 12 weeks, which meant that his Olympic dream was impossible. He chose to use the iWALK2.0 instead and recovered in time to compete in the Olympics. “iWALK2.0 made my Olympic dream possible! I immediately ordered the iWALK2.0, and it enabled me to go to the gym as well as perform any non load bearing cardio activities. Walking on the iWALK2.0 was easy! Thank you for creating this product. It went from all hope being lost of competing in the Rio Summer Olympics, to actually competing and making that dream possible.”
UFC World Champion
Tyron famously broke his foot during UFC 183 where he defeated Kelvin Gastelum even though he broke his foot during the bout. To be ready for his next fight, Tyron needed to continue training immediately, so he got the iWALK2.0. As a result, he was able to continue his training and recovered three weeks faster than scheduled. The rest is history – in his next bout, he became the UFC World Champion.
11X World Champion Surfer
Kelly Slater is touted as the greatest professional surfer of all time, and his achievements back this up. Kelly suffered a severe Jones fracture while surfing in South Africa, and learned that he would need to be non-weight bearing for up to six months. Not a person that likes to be idle, Slater found out about the iWALK2.0 and got on board. Said Slater, “Many thanks to the crew at iWALKFree for my new walking crutch. So easy to get around now”.
