The local sporting arena is a buzz with a number of national and international tournaments and championships taking place. National teams, club teams, institutional teams and school teams are participating at different sporting activities, making the local sporting calendar full of activities. This dynamism can be felt not only in Colombo but across the provinces, which augurs well for the youth of this country.

The sport of rugby has been taken to new heights in the recent past with a look at elevating Sri Lanka as an international rugby venue with worldwide sports coverage and exposure. The local athletes and team members are passionately involved in improving their sporting prowess and winning skills, in order to become a global contender, the way we did in the cricketing arena.

George Steuart Health, a leading pharmaceutical company in Sri Lanka established by George Steuart & Co, the country’s oldest corporate backed by a 170-year history stands committed to support the nation’s positive transformation. Specifically in the sporting arena, George Steuart Health takes pride in promoting world-class health brands, developed by leading global giants to support and improve sports and fitness requirements of local athletes.

Whilst thanking George Steuart Health and SPOL for their kind gesture, Asanga Senevirathne, President of the Sri Lanka Rugby Football Union, said: “Spol Kinematics tape will be useful to prevent debilitating injuries to their key players and will certainly be a boost to attain a greater level of sporting prowess amongst the team members.”

He commended the company for presenting Sri Lankan sporting personalities with global health based innovations, which will help upgrade Sri Lanka’s standards as a sporting nation.

Erandajith Ranasinghe, Executive Director of George Steuart Health, was of the opinion that “every effort will be made by patriotic companies such as GS Health to join hands with national sporting bodies such as SLRFU, to help develop sports in the country.”

“The Spol Sports Tape is used the world over by the leading rugby players as a rehabilitative taping technique that is applied over muscles to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, relax overused muscles and support muscle movement.  It’s non-restrictive, allows a full range of movement and works by improving the body’s natural healing process by increasing the blood flow in and around the muscles.”

The Spol Kinematics sports tape is available at all leading pharmacies in a range of colours. While being a proven sports injury safeguard, this modern product is very much in fashion amongst the world’s leading sports icons. The Spol tape was widely and vividly spotted at the London Olympics.
