Strength of mind

Armed Forces service

Hi, I am a British military veteran. I served 10 years in the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards, on operations in Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan, as well as serving overseas in Jamaica, Kenya, Canada, and the Falklands. In 2011, I was shot several times in the leg and shoulder, which resulted in me losing my right leg above the knee and part of my shoulder.

Bodybuilding and Strongman

After two years of rehabilitation, I was medically discharged from the Army. Since then, I have wanted to challenge myself and my disability. I competed as a Bodybuilder in 2014-2015, winning several competitions and sharing a stage with Phil Heath in America. Between 2016-2019, I competed in Disabled Strongman, winning Britain’s Strongest Disabled Man in 2016 and 2017, winning the Arnold Classic in Columbus Ohio in 2017 and 2018 and winning England’s Strongest Disabled Man in 2018.

Amputee football

Having achieved more than I thought possible in strength sports and wanting to be part of a team and with a football at my foot, I took up amputee football in January 2019, playing for Peterborough United and more recently, Arsenal. Winning the league title with Peterborough in my first season and being awarded player of the year.

Autobiography

I have since been writing a book about all of the above, which I hope to finish soon.

Collapsible text is perfect for longer content like paragraphs and descriptions. It’s a great way to give people more information while keeping your layout clean. Link your text to anything, including an external website or a different page. You can set your text box to expand and collapse when people click, so they can read more or less info.
