James McGill

James served as a Guardsman in the Army before being discharged in 2014. He has a musculoskeletal injury and nerve damage. James competed at Orlando 2016 and this year has been selected in athletics (100 metres, 200 metres and discus), golf and rowing. He hopes sport will continue to be a big part of his life as he moves forward in his recovery: “It enables me to reclaim my identity. I utilise it as a means of wellbeing and maintaining links with like-minded people who have shared similar issues, and help each other through tough periods of recovery.”
