WD: These problems relate mainly to his left stump.
WD: Furthermore it is apparent that he is unable to place weight on his left stump, making walking difficult.
WD: I was contacted by Op on Skype while he was in Germany. He showed me his very bloodied stump. I then arranged for a physician to see him.
WD: He is an anxious individual. I have found him to be anxious with myself and other athletes in the camp. He also has a sleep disorder.
Oldwage: I would like to refer you to page 184.
WD: The publication that I hold in my hand is an extract, that was presented in Germany.
WD: Briefly to explain this, there is an instrument called the Kesslar scale, called K10.
WD: This is to get an idea to find out how they are dealing with the stress.
WD: We look for two things, markers of anxiety. We used a control group, our findings was that the average score was 18.9 before competition and that decreased to 16.1 after competition.
WD: Compared to our control group of athletes without disability was 18. We noticed that disabled atheletes were higher than that of the other group.
Oldwage: My lady, that is contained in page 184. I note that it is 11:15, is this an opportune time to take a tea adjournment?
Oldwage: Did the accused take part in this test at all?
WD: Once they are all scored, the scores are added and this then gives us an average on how anxious the person is.
WD: This was done in the pre-competition phase for Beijing.
WD: The one marked 187, was the post competition phase. What you can see from these, is that the levels goes down after competition, as what we would expect.
WD: I look at the mean scoring of the entire group.
WD: My lady, this is referring back to the abstract, page 184. The mean or average scores for the groups as I have explained. Athletes without disability and athletes with a disability.
Oldwage: To gain clarity to what you have testified. That it suggests that the results prove higher in the average group?
Oldwage: What significance does that prove to our client?
WD: I used these tests in a clinical environment. My job is to look after the health and wellbeing of the athlete.
WD: I use the scores of the test to watch the athlete, as to who are the 5 athletes that have the higher scores and who would need my support more.
WD: That is how we would use these scores clinically.
WD: I also found OP to be hyper-viligent. Even on one on one consultations in my rooms.
Oldwage: You made reference to hyper viligence.
WD: It is a scanning of ones environment.
Oldwage: And you observed our client like that?
WD: OP shows a response of covering his head until noise ends.
WD: Paragraph 25, the last communication I had with OP prior to 14 February, was a call while he was suffering from am upper-respiratory infection.
WD: I informed him to go to the closest pharmacy. I asked him how life was treating him after the competition and he responded " he was lying next to the most amazing woman"
