Shane Hayes – Physiotherapist experienced living & working around the Asian continent. Whilst working with many great elite athletes & high performance sports teams. Mostly working within Olympic programs & training centers including high profiles teams like Chinese Olympic Team, Team Korea, & Team Singapore.

An Australian expat, originally relocated oversea’s after accepting an offer in 2009 to work as part of Singapore’s governments ambitious high performance sports program (Singapore’s Sports Institute). At that time, a lot of change in Singapore’s sports setup was occurring including their new national institute of sport, & development of their sports hub. Was drawn oversea’s by this great opportunity to be part of this great multidisciplinary team of coaches, medical & support staff from around the world. (And of the course wonderful athletes to work with). Subsequently over the years with Team Singapore (until 2012), he began to develop an interest & passion for growing his profession and life in Asia. As well as passion to challenge himself & learn within different teams & cultures.



In the years that have followed, he has subsequently gone on to take on exciting and interesting jobs, contracts & challenges in other places around Asia. And even briefly in Africa. He has worked in many places that have a very different idea of physiotherapy or sports rehab (compared to Australia). Some countries, like China, even lack a history of physiotherapy or active-based sports rehabilitation. Recently he has spent time working with-in Team Korea & Team China’s Olympic teams / programs. Where he has been privileged to help some of the world’s best athletes preparing towards major international competitions & /or the Olympic Games.



On-top he also been fortunate enough to have combined his work with his other passion, of experiencing & learning new culture & meeting people from different backgrounds. Whilst being immersed in countries cultures & sports teams, he has experienced many unique cultures and interesting people around the world.
