Categories: Invictus Games 2016 Athletes

Chris suffers from a spinal injury which gives him restricted movements and limits of use. Since being medically discharged from the military, Chris has been unable to participate in certain sporting activities that he previously enjoyed. However, despite the restrictions of movement on his spine, shoulders and upper limbs, he finds that through archery he can enjoy the competitive nature and fulfilment that the sport provides.  Chris has been able to shoot alongside able-bodied competitors and has realised that he can enjoy success at a competitive level. The Invictus Games has given Chris the chance to try to achieve another sporting ambition and succeed at a high level.
