Veteran Royal Navy Senior Nursing Officer Susan sustained multiple fractures in an accident during service in 2009 in the course of a 36 year career. She was in plaster over much of her body for some time and gradually moved from a wheelchair to crutches. Susan has a passion for swimming and for involvement in sport for the over-55s.  She has been working hard on her training programme which has been helping her to build muscle strength and fitness. This is an ongoing challenge. Susan was the star of the show at last year’s Warrior Games walking the 100 metre ‘dash’ on the athletics track to claim a silver medal; there were only two in the category and she finished three minutes behind the gold medal winner but her determination saw her overcome her lack of mobility.
