Invictus Games

Forces Sport podcast: The former Army captain competing at the Invictus Games


The Invictus Games in The Hague are just over two weeks away and the Forces Sport podcast has looked into a fascinating story in the Team UK squad.

Stephen Rice's story isn't an unfamiliar one – he's formerly a captain in the British Army, he suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following his experiences in Afghanistan in 2010 and, this year, he will be competing at the Invictus Games in The Hague.

He tells Cath Brazier and Julian Evans how far he's come in his recovery and how sport has played an integral cog in that journey.
