I’m here at the Paralympic Village where I’m
going to give you a behind the scenes look at the Ottobock Centre. Now this where the
Paralympic athletes will come if they need any help with their prosthetics, and we get
to see a behind the scenes look at how they’re repaired. There’s are a couple skates in there
that broke loose today at the USA/Japan games. I’m gonna take a look at how they will be
fixed for tomorrow’s matches. Thank you. A bit tight? (laughs). Well actually if it’s
feeling something persistent, it stops. So this is a hockey skate being repaired right
after the Japan/USA match. The toe cap came off. This one looks like it’s been repaired
a few times. Yeah, I guess so. It might be time for a new pair. Want to see some nails?
Can you see it? Oh my. Okay, so how long did we wait to see this? I guess 50 minutes. Can
I touch it? Yeah. Oh, it’s fully solid. So we have to grind it till it’s smooth then
we paint it.
