Jim and Tatsu chatting

Jimbo has been fortunate enough to have hosted a visit by Tatsuro ISHIZUKA who is about to commence his PhD at Keio University, Japan and under the guidance of Professor Yuji OHGI. Tatsu enjoyed wrestling Crocodiles – well watching them from the safety of a cruise boat – and swimming in rock pools – no crocs – at Litchfield National Park.


Here is a link to a short video – yes jim actually made one that is less than 5 mins…

Nat runs the marathon

Last week, Natalie the Marathoner ran and completed the New York Marathon. Well done!!!  Natalie picked up her number a day or two beforehand. Ran the race. Then picked up her finisher’s medallion.


After the run, she said that marathoners are all mad (is she saying that she thinks she is mad???) and never wants to see another bridge again….


Since then Natalie and her family have been resting up in and around New York. They have now just headed to Las Vegas.

Again, congratulations Natalie. We will catch up when you return and can post a video where we chat about the trials and tribulations of it all.

Jim’s Sports Lab – supporter of a great cause.

A couple of months back, Jim was approached to use wearables to monitor a casual runner to prepare to run a marathon – the New York Marathon no less. Natalie Merida has made the commitment to run the NY Marathon in order to raise money for Miracle Babies. This is a not for profit organisation that supports families of premature babies. The link to a series of videos can be found here. It is a worthy cause and any donations would be greatly appreciated. If you wish to donate, please click on this link.
