Stories of Triumph, World Transplant Games 2019 episode 02 – people involved
After a day of flying from Tucson, Arizona to Newcastle, United Kingdom, I arrived in NewcastleGateshead to begin my preparations for the World Transplant Games organized by the World Transplant Games Federation (WTGF). I serve as a board member for the WTGF.
My three flights were blissfully uneventful and I had two airplane seat mates who helped keep the conversation live. On my flight from Atlanta to Amsterdam, I sat next to an ex-military guy on his way to the Middle East to check on something with a private company. Why is it that ex-military guys seem to have to have extremely vague and vaguely fascinating lives? On my short flight from Amsterdam to Newcastle, I sat next to an American guy who just graduated from a university in Virginia who was on his way to study medicine in the United Kingdom.
Upon my arrival I was met by Lynne Holt who is a transplant coordinator who is the person who coordinates organs from the deceased to those who are waiting for organs. Lynne is a worldwide leader in transplant sports as a former board member for the WTGF and Team Great Britain Team Manager.
My number one goal during my first day in Newcastle was to build my bike that I had deconstructed and put into my bike box. See the process below unfold.
After getting my bike, I rode around the Gosforth a suburb of Newcastle (see below).
