One for the band.....

Poppy Pawsey epitomised what the Invictus Games means when she gained a bronze medal in her 100m Freestyle category. It took her a few seconds to realise she’d placed third and it came completely unexpected to her. A huge grin, a lot of screaming with joy and water fist pumps followed.

Speaking immediately after her race Poppy said: “I couldn’t have done it without all these guys behind me. I have so much support here. I’ve got me back and I feel so proud. I never ever imagined that six months ago I’d be smiling again. It means the world. My parents have got their daughter back.”

Six months prior......
