Ian Young

Former Army corporal Ian Young channels the ‘buzz’ he gets taking part in sport, particularly endurance running, into his daily life to make sure he approaches every day with a positive attitude to improve his mental health. He will be competing in the athletics for the UK Team. Ian said: “Regular exercise can have a profoundly positive impact on my condition. It also relieves stress, improves memory and helps me sleep better while boosting my overall mood. I enjoy and thrive being part of a team; something I have missed since leaving the Army. Invictus will give me the spark I desire as well as adding my own personal positive attributes to the team. The feeling and sense of achievement of being part of Invictus 2017 would be something I could never have envisaged.”
