It all started when...

Steve Arnold served in the Army for 16 years before having to leave the job he loved when he lost both legs in an IED explosion in Afghanistan.

Early in during his rehab, Steve took up hand cycling through Help for Heroes and was selected to be part of British Cycling’s development programme.  Sport was always a big part of his life in the Army and has continued to remain a focus for him to prove what can be achieved, despite having a life-changing injury. 

Steve recently transferred to Para Nordic Skiing and despite missing out on the 2018 Winter Paralympics in Pyeongchang, Steve is determined to continue his focus for another Games.  

In 2014, Steve was part of Prince Harry's first ever Invictus Games in London, where he won a silver and bronze medal.  In 2017, he was selected as the Vice Captain for the UK team and won two Gold medals in Cycling as part of the squad in Toronto. Steve is also the athlete representative of the Invictus Games UK Delegation Board.
