A Captain in the British Army, Ben McComb credits his Invictus journey in re-igniting his passion and commitment to sport and all the benefits, both physical and emotional, it brings. Injured for almost 8 years, the 32 year old Captain, originally from Liverpool and now living in North Yorkshire, has been searching for a focus and goal. Since his final diagnosis 18 months ago, Ben is determined to direct his newfound energy into his recovery journey through sport.

This sense of well-being extends beyond Ben’s own personal progress; “I believe my relationship with my family will also improve. Since embarking on the Invictus journey I have remembered my love for swimming. My son, Seb who is 4yo also loves to swim – I now find myself so much more interested in his successes and am more able to relate with his passion. Ultimately, I hope my achievements will inspire him along with my youngest son, Archie.”

When asked, what being selected to represent Team UK would mean, Ben responded;” I firmly believe it would have both short term and lasting benefits on my life. I believe the journey would have a momentous impact on my personal confidence, sense of worth and emotional well-being.”
