A former Private in the Army, Frank sustained two gunshots wounds while serving; one to the right upper arm and one to the right chest. Suffered broken ribs, a collapsed lung and further complications. These injuries have had a significant effect on his psychological, physical and emotional wellbeing. Frank believes the Invictus Games, where he will be competing in sitting volleyball, wheelchair basketball and athletics (100 metres and 4x100 metres relay), will help him to maintain a healthy lifestyle, while also helping reduce stress levels. “It gives me the confidence and team spirit, which enables me to succeed” he says.
