Head Trauma in Sports

Chris Nowinski is a retired WWE wrestler better known by his stage name, Chris Harvard. He was forced to retire in 2007 following a head injury sustained during a wrestling match.

His documentary “Head Games: The Global Concussion Crisis” premieres in London, Tuesday 11th March.

Head injury

Nowinski was kicked in the head by Bubba Ray Dudley (real name Mark LoMonaco) during a wrestling match in 2003. He suffered 5 years of post-concussion syndrome, which included headaches, sleepwalking, and memory problems.

In the USA, the law ensures that young people and their parents are educated regarding the risk of sport-related concussion. However, no such laws exist in the UK.

Nowinski says:

“This isn’t just an American football problem, this isn’t just a boxing problem. All of these sports that involve a lot of brain trauma are putting athletes at risk.”

Nowinski is currently campaigning for greater education in the UK over the risk of sports related head injuries.

The documentary will also be available online and on DVD.
