With the 2010 Winter Olympics but a recent memory, our LASIK for the Gold program has been very quiet of late. Just to recap, this program provides free LASIK surgery to our Olympic athletes in an effort to afford them the best oportunity for Gold. The 2010 Games proved to be a success with our athletes taking home seven medals!
I thought I would share what some of our 2012 summer athletes have recently been up to or said about their experience:
Table Tennis sensation, Samson Dubina dropped us an e-mail last week:
I wanted to update you on my life and training. My last tournament was the North American Championship. I finished #6 in the continent which boosted my world ranking 80 positions and raised my national ranking. Right now I'm training for the US National Championships (last year I finished 2nd in the country.) In preparation, I'll be having one of the best Japanese players living out my house and training me 6 hours/day.
Thanks for you support! I'll keep you posted when I have a competition in NJ sometime!
On Sunday, pole vaulter, Melinda Owen, wrote to her FaceBook Fans:
When I head to bed, and then again when I wake up. . . I am constantly reminded of how grateful I am to Cary Silverman for doing Lasik on me. His generosity really has made a huge impact on my life!!!o
BMXer, Arielle Martin responded to her with:
I'm with you buddy, nothing like waking up in the morning seeing clear and perfect! Dr. Silverman rocks! Hope your killing it over there...
Less than 2 years till the Summer Games in London. Things will begin picking up here. We are all looking forward to more Olympic glory!!
