And the Champions Are…

After two months of preparation, a grueling week of voting, and a week of pure suspense; it is finally time to announce the Champions of our “Building a Champion” – Medi-Dyne’s National Video Contest!

Athletic Trainers and Athletic Training students from across the nation submitted creative videos, which included Medi-Dyne’s ProStretch Plus or RangeRoller, to participate in the video contest. Some videos were informative, some playful, but all highlighted the need for stretching and massage equipment throughout athletics and athletic training. The videos that received the top three-most votes were awarded a donation for their school’s Athletic Training program.

Steve Dippel and students from the Montclair State University Athletic Training Education Program highlight features of the ProStretch Plus, winning first place and taking home the Championship donation of $2,500

Congratulations to our first place Champions, the Redhawks from Montclair State University! The Montclair Athletic Training Education Program won a donation of $2,500 after receiving the most votes for their video, “MSU ATEP Demo of the ProStretch+ Sponsored by Medi-Dyne” . They creatively coined the line, “ProStretch Plus is a Must!” while highlighting key features of the ProStretch Plus, like it’s ability to offer maximum toe and plantar fascia stretch. The “MSU ATEP” students were awarded a Medi-Dyne.com gift certificate, for being the “Biggest Fans” during the video contest.

The race for second and third came down to the last 10 votes!

California Baptist University’s Athletic Training students clinched second place in the end. They won a donation of $1,000 and a Medi-Dyne gift certificate for their participation. Their video “Making Champions Erryday” uses both the RangeRoller and ProStretch Plus in injury prevention scenarios. Get glimpses of their training facilities and campus in their video entry.

Finally, third place goes to Willie and his team of Wildcats from Canton South High School in Ohio. “Medi-Dyne’s Range Roller Rescues Willie the Wildcat” came in as our third and final Championship video for the contest. The Canton South High School Wildcats will receive a donation of $500 for their third place victory, as well as a certificate for Medi-Dyne stretching, strengthening, and rehabilitation products. We look forward to seeing Willie’s victory dance.

Cue Queen’s “We are the Champions”

Thank you to everyone who participated and supported “Building a Champion” – Medi-Dyne’s National Video Contest. The video submissions we received were truly inspiring.  We are excited to award these donations to the following Athletic Training programs, who are continuing to build champions in their schools across the nation.

 “Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, months and years they spend preparing for it. The victorious performance itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character” – T. Alan Armstrong
