Former British Army Veteran David Wilkinson is determined to continue his Invictus journey. Although not selected to represent Team UK at the Invictus Games in Sydney in 2018, he remains positive and focused, taking all the feedback from his coach and support network. He has been training and working on improving his fitness levels.
The Invictus program has enabled him to build his confidence and also support those in a similar situation: “Since I have been on the Invictus journey it has opened my eyes to not only do this as an individual but also support the youth and other various ages and help them get in to something they are passionate about too. As an amputee, I speak to various people including individuals with limitations to see how I can improve as a person but also help the person improve too.”
“I want to show others, regardless of your disability whether it is mental or physical that there is something out there for you to compete in and do well, but also you can achieve anything in life. This will give me both drive and focus to ensure that I can achieve my goals in supporting others.”
