Life is about finding that perfect balance which is even more important after a curve ball the likes of which can get thrown at a soldier in service to their country. Corporal (retired) Bruce Matthews had an 18+ year career starting with the Canadian Army and then ultimately the Royal Canadian Air Force. Quiet and confident, this is a man who already had a great sports career before coming to the Invictus Games with trips to World Championships in three different ‘ball’ sports. At Invictus Games Toronto 2017 presented by Jaguar Land Rover, he will be competing in 5 disciplines across three events: powerlifting, rowing, and athletics.
This is Bruce’s first trip to the Invictus Games and in this fascinating podcast, we learn about why this focus to his life matters and what he thinks the Games has to do with recovery and rehabilitation.
