Categories: Invictus Games 2017 Athletes

Andrew White, a former Army Lance Corporal, felt his life had just begun having been promoted and returned from a tour to Afghanistan. But a severe non-freezing cold injury to his feet instead saw him medically discharged early in his career. Months of depression followed, but he finally sought the help he need to rebuild his life and reignited his love of cycling, which he will compete in at the Invictus Games 2017. Andrew said: “The Invictus Games has given me something other than my injuries to focus on. Until that point I realised that I had just been waiting for the life to be done. I have been training for the last year with the help and support of my family specifically for the Games. Being part of the training camps have really made me feel part of a like-minded team which has given me the inspiration and drive to continue on my road to recovery.”
