Alex didn’t let non-selection for last year’s Warrior Games or Invictus Games set him back. He realises how sport for him is a means of recovery and so re-applied successfully this year.
Alex is looking forward to wearing the Union Flag on his shirt once again. He said: “Sports as a means of recovery has probably saved my life! Through sport I am becoming a better person/father/husband. Competing can only enhance my recovery exponentially. It will give me a huge focal point as I find if I have a goal I train harder and smarter. I'm not the type of person who can enjoy training just for the sake of it. Each goal I achieve is another junction passed on my recovery journey.”
