Waconia Resident Volunteers to Help Olympians, Hone His Craft
Blake Butler, a Waconia resident and physical therapist at TRIA Orthopedic, recently spent two weeks in Denver at the Olympic Training center as a volunteer working to help Olympic athletes as they trained for the 2016 Olympic games in Rio.
According to the Sun Patriot, Butler not only saw this as an opportunity to meet and work with world class athletes, but also hone the craft he’s been passionate about since he was 12 years old.
“I was always in sports and I wanted to do something with the human body,” Butler told the newspaper.
“I really like working with athletes,” he also said. “I wanted to be the person on the other end that took them from point A to B.”
Butler has worked as a physical therapist for 18 years, specializing in running and throwing therapy.
