Tanusha at the Commonwealth Games

Dr. Tanusha Cardoso has been busy of late!

Due to commitments with various sporting teams around the country Tanusha has been away from the Sports Medicine clinic here at Ballarat OSM but is now back consulting every Thursday.

One of her commitments was being part of the 2018 AFLW season, working as the Collingwood Football club’s AFLW team doctor. She says she has embraced the opportunity to work with women’s football in it’s formative years.
“Watching the girls train so hard, despite full time jobs and their constant gratitude inspired me to work even harder to support them. I will always cherish the friendships that I’ve established with this amazing group of players and staff”.
Tanusha has also taken some time off to volunteer at the recent commonwealth games on the Gold Coast in April and was the field of play doctor at the beach volleyball.
“Watching international live sport in one of the coolest places on the coast with some really close games created an electric atmosphere and an amazing work place. It also enhanced my understanding and appreciation for the Sport. I do hope to continue volunteering for the commonwealth games in the future – it’s a truly rewarding and enjoyable experience.”
It took every bit of three sets and every reserve of talent Australia could draw on, but Chris McHugh and Damien Schumann became the first ever Commonwealth Games beach volleyball gold medallists, while the women lost out to the Canadian team.
The Collingwood girls also didn’t get the wins they would have liked, but they did have a first-class medical team looking after them.
We welcome back Tanusha from her travels ready for the rest of the year at Ballarat OSM. She will be consulting every Thursday at 107 Webster Street.
