Scott Simon

Former RAF Flight Sergeant Scott Simon will compete on the UK Team in powerlifting, field athletics and indoor rowing. He has a traumatic brain injury and a spinal injury, which he is currently waiting for surgery on but is determined not to let that stop him compete. He currently leads British Canoeing’s Olympic Development Programme and sees the Invictus Games as his opportunity to compete on a personal level and find the identity that he feels he has lost. Scott said: “Sport has been a huge part of my life. Since being injured and subsequently discharged I have suffered a loss of identity, focus and goals. The chance to represent the UK Team has already helped me regain focus and a personal goal. The Invictus Games will provide me with the ultimate goal of training and competing to represent the UK once more.”
