LCpl Luke Reeson

Cockermouth, Cumbria

Former Corporal Luke Reeson suffered gunshot wounds to both legs whilst serving on operations with the Army. He struggles with muscle loss and nerve damage in both legs on a daily basis as well as having permanent fractures in both major bones in his left leg which makes walking challenging for Luke.

Luke said: “Competition allows me to feel like I live an active, able-bodied life again. Sport has saved me since injury and continues to be my focus. I work in swimming and I am pursuing a career in swimming and elite sports so experiences like the Invictus Games allow me to enhance my chances in the future.”
