Craig will hope to turn on the Styles at next year's Invictus Games

Ben Tyler 5th Nov, 2019

COVENTRY Rugby’s Craig Styles will represent Team UK in The Hague next year at the fifth Invictus Games.

The British Army Veteran, who has had two separate amputations on his right leg and knee, has spoken about the central role that the sport plays in his life.

“It shouldn’t be underestimated what a positive impact and life-changing effect team sports can have,” said Styles.

“Sport has given me the confidence to aim high and achieve results, which a few years ago I may not have felt were possible.”

It will be a first appearance at the Games for Styles, who was named a reserve in last year’s tournament.
