The Football Ferns are in Japan for the 2021 Olympic Games!

Pip Greenwood and Carly Ellis are the physiotherapists for the team. The team has been in camp for 3.5 weeks prior to travelling and also attended six training session during the pre camp to acclimatise in heat chambers at MISH. This is to counteract the humidity and heat that is likely to be present in Japan.
