Invictus Games Day Three

During a visit to the Invictus games on day three of the competition, the Corps Colonel was able to support and catch up with a few of the RLC’s amazing and inspirational athletes competing at the games.

He met up with Charlie Walker and Gareth Golightly at the wheelchair basketball, which was an electrifying event at the Copper Box. Not content with representing his country in one event, Charlie Walker has already won Gold for team GB with Caroline Dufley RLC in the bone crunching final of the wheelchair rugby. Col Corrie also cheered Sgt Joanne Morris RLC across the line in the road bike event, where she had won a bronze medal in the time trial earlier in the day.

Best of luck to all team GB and to our fantastic RLC athletes for the final day of the competition!

Congratulations to RLC soldier LCpl Stu Elvin of the Mission Training and Mobilisation Centre (MTMC), Bassingbourn Barracks, who has received two bronze medals at the World Rowing Indoor Championships 2021. LCpl Elvin has represented the Army in rowing for a number of years. Having individually qualified at the British Championships for the Men's (age 30-39) 500m to race at the World Championships, he was also selected to represent the Armed Forces in the Men's Team race. The races took place on 23 Feb 21, where LCpl achieved third place in his individual race and an hour later, he received another bronze medal as he played an integral part of the Armed Forces Men's Team. His commitment and success in rowing is nothing short of impressive with his ability to balance work, training and family life along with the ongoing restrictions of COVID-19. Competing in any sport at this level requires a unique strength and determination – something which the LCpl displays in abundance, putting in hours of solitary training, where he has had to use his mental resilience to push himself further than most would. ...
