NAC Archer selected to represent UK in Invictus Games

Kerys Knight

NAC compound archer, Kerys Knight has been selected to represent the United Kingdom in the Invictus Games. The UK team announcement was made today – 30th May, and represents another great bit of news for both her and NAC. We must be proud of her. Kerys served in the Army and was discharged in 1991. She has nerve damage in her lower left leg and has to use crutches to help her walk, which has resulted in spinal and neck issues. Kerys has been selected in archery and powerlifting, and sees the Invictus Games as a way for her to progress in life. “I was devastated when my Army career was cut short due to injury during training. Since I was forced to give up my dream, I have always returned to the despair of never having fulfilled my passion to serve my country. Being a part of Invictus 2017 will give me a real purpose, which will help my self-esteem and self-worth, thereby improving my mental health; specifically my anxiety and depression. Representing my country is a goal I can focus and build on to pull forward other aspects of my life.” Visit the “Help for Heroes” Support Page. Photo and write up from “Help for Heroes”.
