  1. Simon Flores - a familiar face?

    Simon Flores

    If Simon Flores looks a little familiar, then it might be because you saw him and his family on the BBC’s 'DIY SOS: The Big Build' in 2017, when he and his three children were the last to move into Veteran Street, the row of houses converted by Nick Knowles and his team – with a little Royal assistance.

    A Liverpudlian by birth, Simon served in the Royal Green Jackets for 12 years before losing a foot in an explosion in Basra 13 years ago.

    His nickname – ‘Hollywood’ – was given to him by an American who noticed his hair stays entirely in place during competition.

    He will compete in his main event – powerlifting - in Sheffield but will also appear in the field athletics and wheelchair rugby. Another competitor from the Warrior games in Florida last month, this will be his first Invictus event.

  2. Nothing is impossible – Lamin Manneh

    If there is proof of life beyond serious injury to be found, it would probably look a lot like former guardsman Lamin Manneh, who lost both legs above the knee and one arm above the elbow in an explosion in Afghanistan.

    A veteran of the Orland 2016 and Toronto 2017 Games, who would have debuted at London 2014 but for a car breakdown, Manneh credits sport as a crucial part of his recovery from his injuries.

    “Taking part in the Invictus inspires many other people to have a sense of self-belief that nothing is impossible if you commit to it,” he said

    His main sports are sitting volleyball, field athletics and indoor rowing and expect to see his wife and five children on the side lines cheering him on.

  3. Sheffield ready to host trials

    Four venues around the city of Sheffield will host 470-plus athletes across nine sports - archery, athletics, cycling, indoor rowing, powerlifting, sitting volleyball, swimming, wheelchair basketball and wheelchair rugby – in the city’s first ever hosting of the Invictus Trials.

    The next Invictus Games will be held in the The Hague from 9-16 May next year and will be the fifth edition of the event that began in London in 2014.

    The aim was to engage sport to help the recovery and rehabilitation of servicemen and women.

    The Duke of Sussex is expected to be at the trials on Thursday, whilst also visiting a children’s hospital and the city’s Hallam University.

    Some of the other events in Sheffield during the trials include a recovery and rehabilitation symposium and an employment forum at the City Hall, where former service personnel can discuss getting back into work.
