Categories: Invictus Games 2018 Athletes

Since leaving the military and losing the career he loved, former Lieutenant Corporal, Andrew, found his mental health has suffered. Focussing on cycling and competing at the Invictus Games has already proved extremely beneficial, and he finds being around like-minded individuals at the training camps has really given him hope for the future. Andrew said: “Wearing the union jack whilst serving made me very proud and to be given the opportunity to represent my country again and to wear the union jack on my chest would be a great start to my recovery.” He also finds the lack of public understanding around mental health to be challenging, so he would like to work with people in the community who also have similarly hidden injuries so he can inspire them to reach their full potential.
