Fremington para-powerlifter Ross Austen has won a silver medal at the 2016 Invictus Games in Orlando, Florida. Ross, 34, earned his place on the podium at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort yesterday (Monday). Competing before a crowd that included former US president George W Bush and Prince Harry, Ross lifted 150kg in the heavyweight competition. The UK medal haul reached 55 on first day of the games, being held this week for wounded, injured or sick servicemen and women. Delighted Ross, part of a GB squad of 110 athletes, said: Sport changed my life; I never thought in a million years that I would wrap myself in my countrys flag again. The former corporal, who lost his leg while on active service in Afghanistan in 2008, is now a full-time athlete with his sights set on the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
