What is the Nature of your injury or illness?
Severe hearing loss which requires hearing aids for both ears.
What role has sport played in your rehabilitation?
It has made me fitter and more determined to go outside my comfort zone. It has also allowed me to meet new people and be in large crowds.
What is your greatest achievement to date?
Competing in the 2016 Invictus Games in Orlando. I was so incredibly humbled to be included in a team made up of some of the military’s best people and meeting some of the most inspirational athletes from all over the world.
Outside the military my greatest achievement is being married to a lovely wife for over 21 years and raising our two sons.
Why did you apply for the Invictus Games?
After the camaraderie and sportsmanship I experienced at the 2016 Invictus Games, I was determined to continue my sporting endeavours to beat my previous bests. The vibe at the 2016 games was like nothing I have ever experienced before so to have the opportunity to experience this again will be amazing.
