Clive Smith

On 13 October 2010 whilst on his second tour of Afghanistan and working as part of the Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) Task Force, Clive stood on a pressure-plate IED. As a result of this he lost both legs and sustained multiple injuries. On his journey of recovery, Clive has turned this disastrous event completely on its head. He has excelled in overcoming adversity and pushing boundaries within sports. Encouraging and inspiring others is really important to Clive and this had led him into motivational speaking.

Your sense of humour was very well received.
