Gold, silver and bronze

bac-72-c-emps-bronzeWe are now well and truly in the season of summer sports. Wimbledon is over, so bring on the Rio 2016 Olympics. That means sports injuries. Not so much the break you leg kind. The more the repetitive strain injury kind. One of the best ways to deal with these – and even to reduce the risk of them in the first place – is to wear a magnetic sports bracelet or wristband.

But aside from that wouldn’t you like a taste of the gold, or at least the silver. Maybe you’d even settle for the bronze. Well Magnetic Products Store has something for everyone. For the bronze there’s the vast range of copper bracelets (bronze being eight parts copper to one part tin). But what if you’re more ambitious than that? Maybe you’d like the silver?

bacs-7-wmps-510 (1) silverWell MPS has an impressive array of silver bracelets and bangles too, like the modern-looking one on the right. They also have designs that are a nod in the direction of antiquity, like the magnificent ABHAY Gothic bracelet below.

Who can gaze upon that bangle and not think about the ancient Olympic games in classical Greece during the great Helenic period?

But what if you a true competitor and will settle for nothing less than gold? Then you will presumably only be satisfied with something like the gold-plated bangle below.

Of course, if mental games and intellectual competition are more your scene, then you might be interested in taking¬†a survey on your game-playing habits, or check out this new game being developed, and it’s associated page on Facebook.

Indeed, the ancient Greeks used to love sport and mathematics. After all, mathematics is the sport of the mind, and sport is the mathematics of the body. But whatever your preference, remember what they say:¬†It isn’t the winning, but the taking part!
