Medical alert systems may not be common in the world of gold-winning Olympic athletes, but at some point all of us need a little extra protection. After the Summer Olympics athletes retire, they're not going to settle for anything less than a gold medal medical alert system.

Here at Alert1, we became curious. We asked which Summer Olympics sports could be performed with a medical alert device. We enlisted the help of our gold medal medical alert, Kelsi. Here, we list all the Summer Olympics events you could compete in while wearing your mobile Kelsi device.

Summer Olympics Sports

  • Soccer: Are you ready to defend your goal from the opposing team? As goalkeeper, you'll have back-up support in your Kelsi medical alert. Stay on your toes and keep your eyes peeled. It’s up to you to save the game with a dive to keep the ball out of the goal. 
  • Tennis: Along with its sister sport of badminton, tennis is a great way to get good exercise while socializing with friends. Ask your spouse or friends to train for the singles or the doubles events with you. When you're training, you can wear your Kelsi around your neck or clipped to your belt. It'll never get in the way of your swing or your stride when running to return a serve.

Summer sports not really your thing? Don't forget about the 2016 Summer Olympics' cousin, the 2018 Winter Olympics! In two years there will be a whole bunch of new sports to try. After you've hung up your Tennis racket for the summer, it'll be time to brush off those downhill skis and hit the slopes for some winter sporting fun.
