Categories: Invictus Games 2017 Athletes

Steve, who served as a Staff Sergeant with 28 Engineer Regiment, lost both of his legs above the knee when he stepped on an IED when leading a search team in Afghanistan in April 2011. Only a couple of months later, he had taken up hand cycling through the Help For Heroes Sports Recovery Program, and was selected by the British Cycling Development Team to race on national and European circuits. He has now turned his attention to Para-Nordic Skiing but will be using the Invictus Games in Toronto to compete against other elite athletes.
