Categories: Invictus Games 2017 Athletes

Michael served as a Senior Aircraftman in the Royal Air Force. He was discharged in 2005, is an amputee and lives with depression. These will be Michael’s first Invictus Games. He will be taking part in wheelchair basketball, athletics (shot put and discus) and sitting volleyball. He says the Games are already having a positive effect on his life after leaving the RAF: “I feel like I’m part of a team again, it’s like I’ve never been away from the Armed Forces. I gel with the other athletes and we have loads in common. “I hope the main benefit for me will be regaining my confidence within a group, be able to talk to others and feel a part of something bigger.”
