Mark Ormrod

Former Royal Marine Commando Mark was out on a routine foot patrol in Helmand Province in 2007 when he stepped on and triggered an Improvised Explosive Device. He lost both his legs and right arm.  Despite his injuries, Mark has refused to let himself be defined by them. He hopes to continue to learn, grow and improve by setting and reaching new goals. Competing in cycling, rowing and swimming he sees the Invictus Games as another piece in his recovery jigsaw. “Having concentrated on other areas during my recovery (including family and career) I missed the opportunities to get into sport. General health and fitness has always been a huge part of my life and I feel that now is the time for me to take it to a competitive level. Competing in the Games will help me feel that I have dominated my injuries.”
