             practitioner in the form of Form 5. (Note: the medical examination
             must be completed within 14 days before the date of this application).
             I also enclose a completed Form 7.
         13. I consent to the collection of medical information relating to me on the
             understanding that it is collected for the purposes of protecting my
             health and safety and that of other contestants, and that this information
             will be kept private in accordance with the Health Records Act 2001,
             except where disclosure to other parties is provided for in the Act and
             the Regulations. *YES/NO
         14. I consent to the collection of information relating to injuries sustained
             by me at professional contests on the understanding that it is collected
             for the purposes of informing research into professional boxing and
             combat sports injuries to promote the health and safety of professional
             contestants. I accept that this information will be retained by the state
             and national governments and may be made available to academic
             researchers under strict guidelines, but that I will not be identifiable by
             name. *YES/NO

         16. I enclose *cash/cheque/money order for registration fee of $50.00
         I understand that boxing and combat sports are hazardous activities that may
         lead to serious injury. In particular, successive blows to the head may lead to
         movement of the brain within the skull of a contestant, rupturing veins, and
         in rare cases, arteries. The resulting bleeding may lead to the formation of
         blood clots, causing pressure inside the skull, restricting the supply of oxygen
         to the brain and causing serious damage to the brain and even death.
         In seeking registration as a professional contestant I knowingly accept this
         risk.
