David Hubber – Invictus Games
The Invictus Games, a bi-annual event which was created by Prince Harry, is a foundation to support injured military personnel. The Invictus Games were due to take place in 2020 but have been delayed to Spring 2022 due to the Covid outbreak.
David, from Ripon, was a corporal in the Army. It was whilst playing ice hockey for the Army in 2002, that he was injured. David suffered an increasingly worsening spinal condition and as a result could no longer continue his role with the Royal Logistics Corps.
During his recovery, David became involved in archery becoming a double gold medallist in the inaugural Invictus Games. He was also awarded the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Helen Rollason Award, given for Outstanding Achievement in the Face of Adversity.
David Hubber is an avid Flexyfoot supporter, and this is what he had to say about using the Flexyfoot products: “I became a double gold medallist in the inaugural Invictus Games whilst doing Recurve Archery. Flexyfoot has helped to prevent my walking sticks and crutches from slipping in the gymnasium environment whilst getting in and out of my wheelchair, which in turn has given me the confidence to carry out my sport whilst knowing I'm safe from slipping around.”
We wish David all the best for the Invictus games in Spring 2022.
