Kieran Wood


A former Kingsman in the Duke of Lancaster Regiment, Kieran has paralysis on the right side of his body and slurred speech and epilepsy following a traumatic head injury in February 2007. He also experiences weakness in his right arm and hand and has very limited movement due to the spasticity. He walks with the aid of leg splints and a functional electronic stimulator to aid with his foot drop. Kieran says that participation in the Invictus Games will help him focus and keep motivated to achieve his goal of keeping fit and mobile. “It will give me a great sense of achievement competing with other injured service men and women. All the training helps greatly with my recovery.”
