Naomi Adie served in the RAF until she was medically discharged in 2014. The 38-year-old who lies in Holme Hale, Norfolk found coping with her injuries and leaving behind a job she loved difficult. Combined with a lack of support during her transition from the military, Naomi’s personal and family life was affected. Speaking about the 2018 Invictus games, Naomi said: It has taken a lot of grit and determination to get where I am today. I have set myself a goal and thrown myself in-not just for me but for my daughter, so she can see mummy achieve something despite my physical limitations. I want her to see the person not the disability or injury and this journey is helping with that.’’ ‘’ I know that doing sport and physical exercise is integral to my journey for both my mind and body. It’s about what it means to me and how it helps me keep fighting and not give up.’’
