The stage is set, it’s the quiet before the storm!

Tomorrow hundreds of athletes from around the world will sit down, strap in and row like demons putting it all on the line.

No one single person has the same injuries, some are visible, some are not, some are mental, some are physical, some are both, the only thing that every single one of us has in common is that we’re here to show the world that while our individual challenges may slow us down, they’ll never stop us.

Well I suppose I can tick that one off the bucket list! Having your image projected onto the side of The Sydney Opera House during the opening ceremonies of The Invictus Games 😳

I honestly don’t know how this stuff happens sometimes but I’m grateful and proud that it does.

So we had an intense thunderstorm, torrential rain, we got stuck on a ferry, delayed by an hour but we still made it to the opening ceremonies and what a great way to kick off @invictusgames2018

Competition officially started today with the @jaguarlandroverofficial challenge where Team UK bagged a Bronze medal and things really ramp up tomorrow with cycling and sailing and then day after day of non-stop action for you all to enjoy.

Rowing is on Monday 😬

Cracking bit of shot putt and discus training earlier with the team.

Now it’s time for a quick shower and we’re off to the opening ceremonies 🤙🏻🤙🏻🤙🏻

Less than 12 months after his leg was amputated, Private Scott McNeice from Team UK will compete at six events at Invictus Games Sydney 2018. “There’s no point sitting there and thinking about how bad everything is or there’s no way forward. You’ve got to crack on!

It’s funny how time stands still and sometimes feels like it’s going in reverse when you’re on a Concept II 😂

Great training session with Team UK today blowing out the cob webs and flushing out the lactic acid.

2 days left until competition starts and 3 days until rowing

Well since it’s #ThrowbackThursday we’re at The Invictus Games and #NoLimits - The Documentary has been released I thought it’d be nice to share a few memories from the journey of last years games.

The last image is mega important so pay attention 😉

Big shoutout to all of you who have already watched #NoLimits - The Documentary, so far we have over 10,000 views which is insane.

Please keep sharing the link (which is in my bio), leaving your comments and tagging anyone in your posts who you think might like to see the film.
Time for a good nights sleep now to get my body back in sync.

Lacking motivation? Feeling sorry for yourself? This will GEN change the way you think and look at life!

Get on to YouTube and get eyes on, it’s only free for a week! 👀

Good luck to @markormrod in the @invictusgames2018 smash it up Royal!

Well that’s the rowing seat all fixed up and attached to the rail, a few tweaks and fixes to the arm and I’m good to go 🚣‍♀️ 🚣‍♀️ 🚣‍♀️

Thanks to all of The Invictus Games staff and volunteers who are on hand around the clock to get us all set up and ready.

IT’S OFFICIAL!

TEAM UK HAVE HIT THE GROUND IN OZ

I’m not gonna lie, the flight over was a bit emotional, it’s currently 0015 and I’m awake posting this because my body clocks all out of sync BUT.... it’s great to finally be here in Sydney.

The friends and family flight have left Singapore and will be here by the morning and I can’t wait to go and see my family before we really get down to business.

Morale is good, the team is ready and in a couple of days time it’s #gameondownunder

I apologise in advance for this but for the next couple of weeks whilst I’m away at @invictusgames2018 I’m gonna be posting A LOT about #NoLimits - The Documentary because it’s gonna be available to watch for free over on my @youtube channel (the links in my bio)

The reason for this is that I want it to reach and hopefully help as many people as possible before I take it down and put it up on my website.

I wanna say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who’s watched the film so far and given they’re feedback. I was hoping it’d do well but the positive feedback has been overwhelming 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 I’m gonna be off comms for a couple of hours now as we fly out to Oz but thank you all again for the feedback so far.

Much love
