Daniel Gill

Former Guardsman Dan Gill joined the Army in 2007, and served for three years before he was injured in 2010. After the amputation of both legs, he was medically discharged in December 2013. Dan has worked hard to maintain physical fitness since injury by playing wheelchair basketball for the last five years and various other activities such as attending the gym and swimming.

 

Dan, who competed at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto, said: “Being able to push myself mentally and physically and having a goal to aim for will help me to focus and help me to realise what I am capable of achieving as part of my recovery.” A keen Wheelchair Basketball player, Dan is pushing himself this year to try other sports, including Swimming and Wheelchair Rugby.
