Rachel Williamson, of Rutland, has been named as captain of Team UK at the 2020 Invictus Games.
Rachel joins her teammates for the first time at the Honourable Artillery Company in London today (Tuesday, October 29). The athletes, 89 per cent of whom have never taken part in an Invictus Games before, will now undergo training camps delivered by Help for Heroes to ensure they are best prepared for the international sporting competition next year.
Rachel is a former physical training instructor and medic in the RAF who was medically discharged after an incident playing rugby. It left Rachel with no function in her right arm and a severe tremor. She competed in the 2018 games.
