Former Army captain Luke Sinnott was a medallist at the 2016 Invictus Games and returns this year to compete in athletics and wheelchair tennis. Since watching the inaugural Games in 2014 from his hospital bed, following revision surgery on his double above knee amputation, he has come a long way on his recovery journey. Competing in 2016 got his sporting talents noticed on the British Athletics scene, and he plans to use this year’s Games to boost his training. Luke is also hoping to compete at the IPC Athletics World Championships in London this year as the UKs best hope for its first ever T42 Long Jump medal.  Luke said: “Athletics is a massive part of my life and Invictus is one of the biggest events of the year. It's great for the family to see what all the sacrifice and training is for. Invictus is all about the team spirit and seeing people grow in confidence and pride within a healthy, competitive environment. I am looking forward to supporting my fellow UK teammates and those of other nations and celebrating their journey. Representing the British Armed Forces again fills me with immense pride.”
