The UK team for this year’s Invictus Games will be announced on Tuesday.

The athletes will be traveling to Toronto, Canada, for the third instalment of this multi-sport paralympic-style event for injured, wounded and sick service personnel and veterans.

Out of the 900 people who expressed an interest in taking part in September’s games 306 applied and in April they all met at Bath for a four-day selection camp.

It was the job of Jayne Kavanagh, UK Team Chef de Mission, and her team to whittle the numbers down to the final 90.

She said: “It didn’t come down to quotas, or picking who had been before - who hadn’t, where they came from, which service - it came down to what impact will this games be on (their) recovery.

“A really hard decision to make, actually, because so many people showed such commitment and such grit to get to where they did.”

So far, more than 300 athletes have been treated to some world class coaching at 32 training camps across the eleven Invictus sports, and these will continue for the 90 selected as they build up to Toronto 2017.
