Michael ‘Micky’ Yule

Locks Heath, Southampton

A former Staff Sergeant, Micky served with the Royal Engineers, losing both of his legs above the knee when he stepped on an IED in Helmand Province in 2010. Micky was a part of the Army powerlifting team pre-injury, and has used the sport as a huge part of his rehabilitation and recovery, culminating in a fourth place at the Commonwealth Games and gold at the Invictus Games last year. The support provided to Micky forms part of Help for Heroes’ partnership with British Weightlifting and the British Paralympic Association to introduce military personnel and veterans to Paralympic Sport.
