Lucas Mazur was 3 years’ old when an AVC left him with an ankle deformity… and an unfailing optimism!
16 years later, Lucas is 3-time European champion and all-category reigning World champion (Simple, Double, Mixed Double) in his sport: PARA-BADMINTON and nothing seems to distract him from his goals:
• safeguard his World Champion title
• be a Para-Olympic Champion at Tokyo-2020 … or Paris-2024!
2017 will be a year of all challenges for Lucas and Compressport® is proud to be part of this adventure.
CS: What has motivated your choice of Compressport® compression clothing?
LM: When the Racket range of products was put on trial and test by the French Badminton Team I was impressed by the results, which completely convinced me of the benefits they bestow on performance. Since then I have not let go of my Racket products.
CS: How does Compression Clothing prove beneficial to your performance?
LM: My must-have products are the Quad, the Underwear Short, the On/Off Shirt and the Armforce. They allow me to be in good posture always and to support my muscles during effort. Because of my impairment, my back is much under strain when I go after the shuttlecock. My compression garments delay fatigue, limit injuries and protect my muscles.
CS: When do you use your compression clothing?
LM: Each garment accommodates my needs and I wear each as per the state of fatigue I find myself in and the level of recovery I wish to attain. 30 minutes before a match I wear my apparel to warm up, play in and recover in them 30 minutes after the match.
CS: Would you say that Racket products contributed to your latest performances?
LM: Definitely! And that`s why I have renewed my trust in them. The sport that I practise requests that my physical condition be always at its best and compression clothing is of great help in my case.
CS: What`s on your agenda in 2017?
LM: I am preparing myself and working serenely at enrolling on the World Championship in Korea in November next. To do so, I will have to negotiate all the anterior tournaments: Spain, Turkey, Ireland, Japan, Peru and USA. 2017 will have to be better than 2016 and I have no intention of letting go of my world champion title.
