‘Age is just a state of mind’. While for some, age marks the end of a career, Gregory Gaultier, the French top seed who was recently seen at the semifinals of the Squash World Champions believes in defying the conventional thinking.
Despite losing the semifinals with Mohamed El Shorbagy, Gregory Gaultier, who turns 35 in a week’s time and is short of sleep after the birth of his second son, played with outstanding dexterity in the first and third game and might have become a strong challenger if he had made it to the finals.
Dr. William Murrell, CEO of Emirates Integra Medical & Surgical Centre, an Emirates Healthcare company said, “Squash is one game which requires a lot of control and focus, and playing the game at the age of 35 at the professional level is not kind of a story you hear a lot. Gregory has not only made it to the semi-finals but has been a strong opponent for players a decade younger than him. This is truly inspirational and we’re proud that Gregory is the ambassador of goodwill and determination with Emirates Integra.”
Dr. William Murrell added, “The muscles mass, joints, and bones have to be in good condition to play a sport as squash at this age, which is a clear reflection of a right pattern of lifestyle implemented by Gregory to maintain his incredible longevity at the top of squash for so many years. It emphasizes that using the right sports technique, agenda and with the advances in regenerative medicine like PRP, we can now help maintain players longer and more naturally.” Gregory has maintained great discipline, and rigorous training to meet the sports great demands physically and mentally. “Maintenance is an essential step to not just a healthy living for the day, but also in the future.”
“In my career spanning 15 years, I’ve seen young players who are barely in their early twenties, having body structure and strength like players much older. This is a result of several unhealthy habits with major causes being the use of mobile, television and inadequate warm-up techniques,” concluded Dr. William Murrell.
