Allan served with the Scots Guards and was always a keen sportsman participating in regimental sports, even winning several awards along the way, but when he was diagnosed with hip dysplasia, he was medically discharged.

As well as being physically injured, his mental health also suffered, but he found staying physically active led him to setting himself new goals: “Adaptive sports for wounded individuals like myself and many others have given us a platform to express and challenge ourselves physically and mentally, beat the odds and inspire others. Competing for me is putting together all the build-up of the hard work endured in training.”
