Anthony Booth

Anthony Booth, a Warrant Officer in the RAF, isolated himself from sporting and social occasions and became withdrawn from forming meaningful friendships, after suffering years of mental and physical injuries. However, the Invictus Games process is helping the 48-year-old from Cirencester to feel alive again and he says his family is seeing the real him start to return. “Being a part of the Invictus family would also enable me to challenge myself physically and mentally, but knowing there will always be someone by my side.”

 

Anthony would have applied for a previous Games but last year but withdrew as whilst receiving treatment for his PTSD, his wife suffered a stroke. “Family always comes first, she was always there for me and it was time for me to be there for her. In a way this would also repay her continued love and support for me. The mutual support we give each other keeps me motivated to maintain a healthy balanced life.”
