Former Army Lance Corporal Craig Winspear lost both of his legs and sustained other multiple injuries after a bomb exploded beneath him. He was medically discharged after competing in Invictus 2016 and has since found it hard to cope. He will join the Wheelchair Basketball team this year. Craig said: “Since being medically discharged I hit a bit of a slump and low point. The Invictus Games has always motivated me. Being part of something, the camaraderie, being someone again and for my daughter to look up and see that I am still pushing forward in my life and overcoming adversity. Training and competing keeps me in shape and also benefits my health, which is important for my condition.”
