Good Humans with Cooper Chapman

#120 Keegan Hipgrave - Medically retired from the NRL

Season 1, Ep. 120

Keegan is someone who truly inspires me and has one of the biggest hearts I have ever seen.


Growing up on the Gold Coast meant Keegan was in love was surfing and NRL from a young age. As a bigger kid, he thrived in the junior ranks and through high school. Straight after High School he was playing for the Brisbane Broncos under 20s and had a huge career looming.


Keegan made his debut in the NRL in the last game of the 2017 season for the Gold Coast Titans and went on to have a few awesome years. But they came with a cost. Multiple head knocks and overcoming so many adversities. In 2021 Keegan was medically retired from the NRL after a brutal 3rd head knock at just 24 years old.


The thing I love most about Keegan is what he did next. Studying a business MBA at Bond University and making a huge impact on the world through his work at What Ability. , a charity helping disabled children.

    Paul is one of the nicest guys I have ever met and someone who I was lucky enough to work with for the last few years of my surf career being my physiotherapist.He grew up in Thirroul just south of Sydney with a massive love for sports. Towards the end of high school and for a few years after he dedicated his life to triathlon and travelled internationally to compete. He then realised it wasn't the life he wanted to pursue and spent a few years traveling and experiencing the world.In his mid-twenties he attended university and studied exercise science and physiotherapy. Since then he has been a physio for top-level athletes and for the last 6 years the head physio for Australia's best surfers at Surfing Australia.We chatted about my 100km run and some tips for taking care of your body as a runner and a surfer.A few key topics in this chatGrowing up in ThirroulTriathlonUniversityPhysiotherapy Tips for my 100km runPaul's LinksINSTAGRAMSPONSORS :)MEDIBANKWILD EARTH AUSTRALIAFor all of your running, camping, and adventure needs!
