This time, they won the third place in the Olympiad.
“UNAIR first participated in 2014, but did not win. This year we participated again and Alhamdulillah we won third place,” said Fika, Physiotherapy UNAIR 2014 student.
The topic proposed in the competition was “Management Physiotherapy for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury”. There were three competitions, Olympiad, public speaking and essay competition. All three were held on June 4 and 5 in Muh Djazman Hall, UMS.
Annual Olympiad which has been held for seven times was participated by 13 teams from eight universities in Indonesia. Besides UNAIR, there were representatives of Universitas Palembang, Universitas Dhyana Pura (Undhira) Bali, Universitas Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM), Universitas Muhammadiyah Surakarta (UMS), Politeknik Kementerian Kesehatan (Poltekkes) Surakarta, Sekolah Tinggi Ilmu Kesehatan (STIKes) fort De Kock Bukittinggi, and Poltekkes 3 Jakarta.
There were three rounds in the Olympiad. First round, they were given 20 True/False questions. Second round, they answered 35 short questions. And the last round, they had to answer fast 12 questions. From the three rounds, the winners were decided.
At first, they were just trying to compete, but they admitted that they got many new experiences.
“We usually study questions in our classes. Then suddenly during the competition, the questions were different from what we got in classes. In classes we just practice usual exercise. In physiotherapy there are six aspects, one of them is sports. And the Olympiad was focused on sport physiotherapy,” said Fika.
To deal with the problem, Fika and team were assisted and guided by their senior in Indonesian Physiotherapy Student Association (IMFI).
“In campus, doctors and physiotherapist taught us, but we also have a senior who helped us. We knew our senior from IMFI,” said Fika. (*)
