With the 2018 Invictus Games held in Sydney drawing to a close on Saturday 27th October 2018, Dave Watson returns to the UK the proud owner of two Gold and two Silver medals.
We reported on Tuesday last week how Dave had already picked up two silver medals in the four minute and one minute endurance Rowing. However, after meeting Dave and hearing of his Gold medal in the Discus and bronze in the Shot at the Invictus Games 2017 in Toronto, all eyes were on Dave to continue his winning streak and more importantly retain his gold medal …..and he did not disappoint!
Dave successfully regained his place at the top of the podium in the Discus event with a distance of 22.96 metres and went on to move up the podium from last year, gaining a second gold medal in the Shot event with a distance of 6.99 metres.
We have no doubt that after touching down back in the UK on Monday there will be lots of celebrating to be had by all!! Well done Dave, you are an inspiration and we salute you!
