Sarah Robinson

Sergeant Sarah Robinson from Hull has many reasons for wanting to take part in the Invictus Games. “I want to get my identity back - the soldier, the professional, the competitor, the mother. I was someone who was top in her field, but I can’t seem to claw my way back. But through sport and new challenges I know I can push myself to achieve and change my path for the better.” It has been a long journey so far, but 41-year-old Sarah now has the confidence and determination to succeed as part of a new team. “The Invictus training camps have shown me that I can do this. I have a reason to go outside. As I become more knowledgeable and fitter, things are slowly becoming easier. I’d like to get to the stage where I can be of a positive example to other reservists who find themselves in this situation.”
