What role has sport played in your rehabilitation?
It has given me a lot of friendships and a strong support network. Sport has given me a goal to work towards as well as a reason to get out of bed in the morning and get on with life. It has allowed me to achieve things that I never thought I would be able to.
I have been able to help others by getting them involved in sport the way people initially helped me.
What is your greatest achievement to date?
Being a dad.
Why did you apply for the Invictus Games?
I wanted my children to see me in a different light as opposed to what they see every day. I have seen firsthand the difference being involved with events like the Invictus Games has on others in my position.
