Three Australian Athletes Struck By Illness In Derby

Authorities Investigating Problems Ahead Of Olympic Games


Investigations are continuing after three members of Australia’s badminton team preparing for the Olympics were apparently forced to miss training due to illness during their preparations for the Games in Derby.

Reports have revealed that Ross Smith, Renuga Veeran and Glenn Warfe fell ill last week (July 17th) as they continued training at the city’s Etwall Leisure Centre and stayed at the local Mickleover Court Hotel.

The affected players have since been able to train and also took part in an exhibition match at the weekend.

Irwin Mitchell’s specialist illness team represent people who have suffered significant health problems as a result of outbreaks of food poisoning in a range of environments in the UK and abroad, helping them to secure justice for the long-term impact that such issues have had on their lives.

Elizabeth Tetzner, an expert in food poisoning claims at the national law firm, said: “News of these problems is a concern, particularly when seen in the context that these athletes will be gearing up for the next few weeks of competition.”
