He has also placed 4th at the 2001 Asian Duathlon Championships in Hong Kong and made several podium finishes in the Asian Cup Triathlon Series events over the years while holding down a full time job as a physiotherapist.
Partly as a result of his grueling training regime, Gino needed 3 knee surgeries in 2002 and 2003. After which he made a comeback and placed 4th in the 2005 SEA Games triathlon event.
When not participating, Gino has kept close to sports, travelling widely with the Singapore medical teams for major overseas events such as the various SEA Games, 2002, 2006 Commonwealth Games, the 2006 Asian Games and he is the only local Singaporean physiotherapist to have been to both the 2004 Athens and 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Rachel joined Sports Solutions to pursue her passion for sports rehabilitation and musculoskeletal physiotherapy.
Among her friends, Rachel is known for being someone who excels at sports. At a younger age, she represented her school in Badminton, Football, and Ultimate Frisbee. Rachel also enjoys CrossFit, which is a strength and conditioning program aimed at improving fitness for all. While competing in football, she became fascinated with the way physiotherapy was able to help her injured teammates return stronger than before and become better athletes. Her experience in an outpatient sports setting in the UK helped consolidate this interest and affirmed her aspiration to focus on this area of physiotherapy.
Rachel believes in stepping away from the simplified method of treating symptoms and looking at the whole person for a holistic, multi-faceted and more effective resolution to the problem. Her interests in movement dysfunction and postural impairments help her to locate the source of pain and design individualized programmes that prevent recurrent injury, resulting in better long-term results.
Rachel is qualified in Kinesio taping and combines this with manual techniques as treatment. She loves to help others and is determined to assist all patients in returning to their daily routines and sporting activities as soon as possible.
