  • "In my opinion, Orreco’s systems are unique, innovative and will result in demand across high performance networks and systems. This is because they are a one stop shop, reliable, global resource for real-time sports haematology results. Their system provides easily navigable access to established and contemporary haematological ranges and results can be cross-referenced with performance. Elite programmes can now access a world-class sports haematological service anywhere in the world. I would like to offer my unreserved support for this visionary and highly innovative proposition."

  • "Due to the busy schedule of F1 with travel, PR events and racing all over the world it is important to make the most of all the training you do, which is why Orreco has worked so well as I know, just like the car, what I need to do to maintain peak condition throughout the season."

  • "One of the most difficult elements of competing at a world-class level in professional golf is the balance between training hard to improve fitness levels whilst ensuring adequate recovery. Orreco has developed novel applications to find objective markers to determine that balance and protect their athletes from overtraining and burnout. With Orreco’s assistance I have been able to obtain objective information about my readiness to train and, in my opinion, their support is a must for athletes competing at the highest level of their respective sports."

  • "I used blood tests to monitor my training and to make sure I wasn’t pushing too hard in my preparation for the Sydney Olympic games – and that worked out pretty well! I was really appreciative of all the work we did back then in 2000 and I am delighted to see the consistent progress that has been made since then.

    In my role as Chef De Mission (Team Ireland) for London 2012 and as a mentor to international athletes, I am aware of the new ideas that Orreco is applying with the current generation of World Class performers. I think these concepts and new assays are extremely interesting and I’m convinced they will be of benefit to athletes and coaches competing at the very highest level."

  • "Being an Olympic Bronze Medalist in 3k SC, 1988, and coach to world-class athletes, I know that training alone is not sufficient in the modern day to gain a competitive edge. That’s why we at OTCE, have enlisted the Orreco team, due to their increasing reputations as high-performance sports scientists, physiologists and sports haematologist providers. Their service enables us to limit the number of training days lost to overtraining, illness and infection. Although we are currently working on improving the testing protocols prior to altitude and heat preparation camps, the most exciting period lies ahead as the team prepare to launch a new portal that can generate real-time results and potentially predict performance. A tool any coach seeking an edge will want."
