A British forces veteran and wheelchair tennis player is heading to the Winter Paralympics as part of a push to compete in the Summer Games in two years.

Cornelia Oostuizen is on the Paralympic Inspiration Programme (PiP).

She's on a mission to absorb the scale of the Games in Pyeongchang, as her big hope is to compete in the 2020 Games in Tokyo.

Cornelia spoke with Forces Radio BFBS Presenter, Adam Powney, and told him about her story.

Despite, having complex regional pain syndrome, she has overcome her many barriers to achieve world rankings in tennis and compete at the Invictus Games.
