Ibrar (Ibi) Ali MC

Selby, North Yorkshire

A former Captain in the Army, Ibi lost his right arm below the elbow caused by a roadside bomb in Iraq, Feb 2007. He was able to re-deploy in a frontline Infantry role in Iraq in 2008 and subsequently to Afghanistan in 2012. Ibi says that participation in the Invictus Games would provide him with the focus he needs to get back into training and would give him a reason to improve his diet and get outside training during Winter and Spring. “It will also give me the impetus I need to try track running and swimming, both of which I have tried to avoid due to a fear of failure.”
