Cobourg Now Community News and Magazine has published an article about Dr. Alban Merepeza’s work with Olympians like De Grasse, Bingham & Walcott.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
“Merepeza, who’s had his practice in Port Hope for over 15 years, obtained an Honours Bachelor Degree in psychology from Trent University before graduating from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto where he earned distinct clinical excellence. He went on to complete the International Chiropractic Sports Sciences program and about three years ago earned a Masters of Science Degree through McMaster University’s Masters of Rehabilitation Sciences program. He would like to complete a PhD degree in the future as well.
Canadian Olympic sprinter Khamica Bingham is just one of the athletes grateful to work with Merepeza.
Bingham competed in the women’s 100 metres and 4×100 metre relay at the 2016 Olympics in Rio. The Brampton runner is currently training in Louisiana with hopes of competing in Tokyo.
Injuries happen and the past few years have been challenging for Bingham, but that’s where Merepeza comes in.
“When I started seeing Alban, he has been a key component in helping me to stay healthy, helping me to understand why the injury has happened and how to prevent it,” Bingham said. “I’ve been seeing him since 2017 and I’ve been really, really grateful for him. He is my go-to guy and I remember in 2018 I was dealing with my Achilles injury and this is when I’ve already left for Louisiana so there was a bit of distance, but I would still come home and see him regularly for treatment and he brought me to the track in Cobourg. That was just for him to be able to see how my running (was) and if there was anything that could be contributing to the injury or preventing it from not happening again.”
Bingham has been able to compete in the United States as she prepares for the Tokyo Olympics.
“He’s been really helping me to stay healthy and I owe a lot to him that I’ve been able to stay healthy this season,” Bingham said of Merepeza. “Having the guidance of Alban has really been helping me to get my body intact and back to where it used to be.”
