Cornelia Oosthuizen

A former Major in the Army, Cornelia will be competing in wheelchair tennis, swimming, cycling and golf at Toronto 2017. She has a functional impairment illness and reduced mobility. Cornelia represented the Army and Combined Services in several sports during her military career. Having dearly missed competing, she says it’s a privilege to be part of the UK Team for this year’s Games: “I've always been sporty. Being part of the Invictus Games will benefit my mental state immensely. It’s important to realise there’s so much you can still do. Competing gives me the chance to show how you can adapt to playing sport in different ways while meeting some great people. I aspire to participate in wheelchair tennis during the 2020 Paralympic Games. As a member of the British Tennis Foundation's preliminary development squad, I have a superb opportunity to perhaps realise this dream.”
