Running Clinic in Azerbaijan

The Running Clinic made it to Baku for the first time and took place from September 20th until September 22nd 2019. The event was supported by the National Paralympic Committee Azerbaijan and Rehabilitation Center Baku.

12 female and male amputees have been coached by Heinrich Popow.

For all participants it was their first experience with an Ottobock sports prosthesis and they were interested in what kind of activities they can realize with it.

The two youngest in the field were 9 and 11 years old. Imran (9) and Leila (11) enjoyed the event and have been really delighted by the training sessions with Heinrich Popow.

The end of the Running Clinic was crowned by a basketball and volleyball game with all participants.
