"I used blood tests to monitor my training and to make sure I wasn’t pushing too hard in my preparation for the Sydney Olympic games – and that worked out pretty well! I was really appreciative of all the work we did back then in 2000 and I am delighted to see the consistent progress that has been made since then. In my role as Chef De Mission (Team Ireland) for London 2012 and as a mentor to international athletes, I am aware of the new ideas that Orreco is applying with the current generation of World Class performers. I think these concepts and new assays are extremely interesting and I’m convinced they will be of benefit to athletes and coaches competing at the very highest level."
