Ayr United star inspires Crohn's sufferers to get back in the game.

Posted Oct 14 2008 4:59am
Inspired by Sir Steve Redgrave —the world-famous Olympic rower who also suffers from Crohn's disease— David Gillies, a striker for the Ayr United F.C.,* is using his story to prove you can play your hardest, even at a 10.

"...when I went to the doctor they'd say, 'On a scale of one to 10, what's the pain like?' And I'd say, '10'. But he'd look at my notes and say, 'It can't be a 10 because you're training every day'. When you play sports you just get used to playing with injuries. I was enjoying it so I kept doing it and tried to ignore the pain."

*That's a Scottish football club for those of you who don't know. Soccer for you Americans.
