What a pleasant surprises! This afternoon I meet a nice young man who needed a custom made, sports mouth guard.
It turns out this young man is well renowned Commonwealth games gold medallist, amateur boxer, David Nyika.
I was impressed with how down to earth and approachable he was.
He was even gracious enough to pose for some pics.
David obviously realises the benefits of a well fitted mouth guard to protect his pearly whites.
He told me a story of how a non-custom mouth guard had been knocked out of his mouth whilst in the ring and how he was unable to get it back into his mouth correctly whilst carrying on with the fight.
I can imagine this would make it hard to focus 100% on the task at hand if you know that there is something not quite right.
