Micky Yule's Story...

From Afghanistan to Rio 2016 Olympics

They say a split second can change your whole life.

For Micky Yule it was a single step…

…It was the 1st July 2010.

A day he’ll never forget.

As a staff sergeant and search advisor in the Royal Engineers, Micky was 6 weeks into his 2nd tour of Afghanistan.

While 90% of the soldiers in Afghanistan were doing their best to avoid them, Micky’s patrol were tasked with finding and destroying the IED’s (Improvised Explosive Devices) laid by the Taliban and make it safer for ground troops.

It was a normal day.

His patrol had around 100 meters to clear when Micky found what he was looking for, only this time he stood on the pressure plate…

Micky Yule’s Incredible Story: Road to Rio

As a result of what happened on that Day, Micky Yule lost both of his legs and was medically discharged from the army.

Through his strength, courage and unbeatable will to live, the heroic actions of the men in his patrol, the prayers of his friends, family and colleagues and the tireless work of all the medical staff at Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital in Birmingham and at Headley Court, the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Unit in Surrey and the ABF Soldiers Charity, Micky is still on the road to recovery.

Every day has its challenges but he continues to amaze and inspire people with his progress and his achievements.

With help from Help for Heroes and The National Lottery, in 2014 he came 4th in the Paralympic Powerlifting at the Commonwealth Games, later that year he won Gold at the Invictus Games. He is also on track to qualify for the Rio 2016 Olympics.

As well as his incredible success and a top level athlete, Micky consults with and speaks to companies and organisations nationwide, sharing his story to inspire teams and individuals to overcome all of life’s challenges and adversity by setting goals, staying focussed and creating an unshakable will to succeed.
