Hi guys are here in Orlando at the infected gains for the wheelchair rugby match the celebrity. Matches on tonight. And the coach of the Land Rover team right down there thank you very much what was your experience of F jaguar and of course and rover. This is our practice session. Athletes right now some very new and Courtney chair and some experience and leisure suit. Is this the first time all together yeah so right now is kind of a warm up Microsoft scrimmage and the national right. Is this your first time getting to coach all of them here on time not only first and in what your room. First time up close and personal. I've seen have studied it to view of this media athletes beaten on the court. In person this spectacular. Do you have team favorites so far as somebody shining extra rent. He'll policy right now it's just ibizan Seton people get acclimated with the cheers were an election for the coach David because he's having communicable down everything. It's unbelievable human strategy were just setting our defense operate knows what's crazy restaurant closed. The year coaching Alter I'd imagine for the first time. And how you use your experience that you need to translate into that sport honestly. And its creeks talk to experienced athletes as well. Your team picked its games now in for 500 athletes from fifteen countries. And I think not only with wheelchair rugby basketball volleyball power with. Swimming it is intense individuals driven by the sense of competition and with dean Vick to schemes doesn't give them a chance he. And that is what we do with the WB a daily basis we go from city to city. And and bring that energy and bring that excitement and for these veterans to chance for them to sit right here. Crowd rate setting it truly is one. Absolutely it's been incredible watch the last few days intensity on the field in the pool on the track what is it you do with competitors to rate I'll let them. To come out to be able to complete its work to be able to be on the seems to music it truly is a wonderful thing for Terry it stands. So this is a chair mats but is there any revelry going on side of the US weekend they have played against each other before and the competitors over their own team jaguar no loss over here anti Land Rover so. You know everywhere you say friendly competition. That exists only to a point it's you can hear some fixes back I think what's we start the scrimmage it'll. It would be very competitive. It's intense these wheelchairs are heavy duty heavy duty and disciplined or contact there's a certain defensive cheer there's a certain offensive cheer the often teachers meant to cut through the line. The defense in the cheers meant to hold the line so. I'm learning about all of this but it truly is fascinating and these athletes are not afraid to get in and hit which is what the sport is all about absolutely and. Is there any thing that you've taken from this is this your first time coaching them so that you know tonight. You want to give them an extra pep talk but he gonna tell them we'll you know what I think sport aside. What do particularly from the schemes. Jaguars led to witness. It's like this at taking people alive to compete with competition today. And giving them that platform to compete and that is what's most here. When I get to talk to my team before it to court. It's basically thank you for thank you. We'll be involved in this it's it's it's a great day that gains rate according looking forward to next year's Toronto went really honest. Taken aback by Elvis that it is my pleasure to be. Absolutely as well and so you're committed to next it and hope so that's going to be object worldly and over of course in victories it's when a news wouldn't you know what. To me right now I'd been friendly scrimmage analysts it's about winning and losing. As we're gonna win.

Getting a ride to the games tonight and it's just that it's actually very excited it's another. The special ways the jaguar Land Rover that its games. He backed out it's a nice surprise. Few athletes and fans not expecting it. Hope Ludwig either want these ultra pricey but no it's it's it's with the. I'll track to let the cat out of the bag on that one. Think a top secret thank you John. As we speak with one of your athletes I think Derek was around.
