Proteses op de atletiekbaan. Onderbenen aan de badrand. Niks bijzonders tijdens de Invictus Games. Van 10 tot en met 14 september kwamen in Londen bijna 400 gewonde (oud-) militairen uit 13 landen tegen elkaar uit. Deze ‘militaire Paralympics’ stonden in het teken van prestaties, waardering en verbroedering.
My name is Renate Brzoskowski and I am 38 years old. I own a hairdressing shop and a (sports)massage practice that uses Kinesiotaping. Previously, I was in the Air Force for 10 years where I worked as a civilian employee at the Physical training unit. I was stationed with the Guided Missile unit at “De Peel” Airbase, now called the Lieutenant-general Best Barracks. I am still in touch with former colleagues and soldiers that deploy on missions. This way, I noticed that a former collegue started to make bracelets during deployment. I thought it was a good idea to sell these in my shop so show more respect for soldiers and veterans.
