Emma Templeton

Emma discovered her love for powerlifting whilst attending an Invictus Games training camp last year.  Inspired by the massive and positive impact that the Games has had on her best friend, Emma applied for the Warrior Games this year.

Despite Emma’s lifelong love for sport and exercise (her illness resulted in her withdrawing from both the physical and social aspects) she believes that the Warrior Games will help her connect with other athletes, make friends and therefore increase her confidence and energy to continue to do what she loves and give her that zest for life. “The Warrior Games would help with my recovery by giving me additional focus and give me a great reason to want to jump out of bed in the morning and hop, skip and jump to the gym and swimming pool,” said Emma.
