  1. Jonathan Mitchell: Back in the brotherhood

    Jonathan Mitchell

    Powerlifter Jonathan Mitchell lost more than half his body weight to chemotherapy as he battled the highly-aggressive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia for four and half years.

    The eight per cent chance of survival he was given wasn’t a problem, he says, because he believed he was 'bulletproof'. More worrying was the prospect of being discharged from the army, which he saw as his ‘second family’.

    “I grieved the loss of the Army, becoming depressed,” he recalled. “I missed feeling that sense of pride and being a part of the brotherhood.”

    He volunteered for the Invictus Games and won a powerlifting bronze in Sydney last year and has been working hard to better that this time around with the support of Help for Heroes.

  2. Caroline Buckle: Local hero

    Yorkshire-born Caroline Buckle served for 12 years in the army before suffering life-changing injuries to her left leg and anxiety, depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after an incident in 2009.

    Her recovery through sport has been remarkable since then. She has lost seven stones in weight, mainly through powerlifting and secured a job in the NHS.

    Now back from the Warrior Games in Florida, she is urging the people of Sheffield to get behind the trials. “We Yorkshire folk are proud people,” she said.

    “I hope that the City’s people will come out to show this to each of the athletes and their families, giving them a fantastic welcome.”

  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.
