Francis is an Army Veteran presently studying Oil, Gas and Energy Resource Management at Coventry University. He fractured his right leg with an ankle ligament injury and sustained Medial Tibia Stress Syndrome in two different incidents. This results in severe pain after minimal movement that led to him being casevaced out of theatre after receiving series of medical treatment at Mob Lashkar Gah and Camp Bastion. This brought forward the end of his operational tour. Sport drives and motivates Francis. He believes the Invictus Games will reinstate his passion for sports after his injury deprived him of being active. He wants to open doors to greater sporting opportunities, particularly in team sports and Athletics.
