Categories: Invictus Games 2017 Athletes

Army Veteran Martin Tye’s injury has had a negative effect on his mental health and as a result, after leaving the military, he pushed his friends and family away. He will compete in six of the eleven sports on offer: rowing, wheelchair rugby, powerlifting, athletics, wheelchair basketball and sitting volleyball. Martin said: “Invictus has given me the confidence to meet and make new friends which is bringing me out of my depressed state. I’m finding my sense of humour again and enjoying life. It has given me goals to work for to better myself and it has also given me the confidence to join clubs to carry on with the sports outside of Invictus.”
