Stuart Robinson

Morecambe, Lancashire

Stuart served in the Royal Air Force. He was involved in an IED incident in Afghanistan in 2013 which has resulted in bi-lateral amputation of both of his legs. He also has a nerve injury to his shoulder a plate in his forearm. Sport has played a massive role within Stuart’s rehabilitation. “I was lucky enough to be selected for the inaugural Invictus Games in 2014 and competed in wheelchair rugby. Wheelchair Rugby is now a huge passion of mine and having recently been classified to play rugby at a club (Ospreys) and international level; the opportunity to participate in the 2016 Invictus Games is an event I have been striving to compete in. When I originally attended the 2014 IG trials, I was lacking in self confidence in my ability within the sporting field and struggling to come to terms with the life changing injuries I had sustained only 18 months prior. Having the 2016 games to aim towards has given me purpose, drive and determination to overcome adversity.”
