Categories: Invictus Games 2017 Athletes

Pa served in the Army. An amputee, he lost both his legs (left leg below the knee and right leg above the knee) in Afghanistan after stepping on a roadside bomb. He was discharged in 2012. Pa will be competing at his first Invictus Games in sitting volleyball, wheelchair rugby and athletics. Despite his life-changing injuries, he sees Invictus as a way of looking to the future: “It helps me to overcome my adversities and challenges.”
