Stefan 'Wolf' Wolput was always a very active individual, he was an avid cycler and mountaineer and served in the Belgian Air Force for over 30 years.
That changed in 2012 when he began to suffer from 'neurological deficits' with an unclear cause, this results in an abnormal function of a body area due to injury to either the brain, spinal cord, muscles, or nerves.
Initially it affected his right toes, but later his lower leg followed and now he suffers from complete paralysis from below the knee. Wolf found himself in a really dark place in 2014 and credits the love of his wife and the inspiration he received from watching the Invictus Games on the BBC in 2014 as key motivators that helped him on his recovery journey.
He wanted to be just like the competitors he saw on television and he got the chance to make that dream a reality at The Hague 2020 when Belgium joined the Invictus community in 2019 and they competed at their first Invictus Games in the Hague.
Wolf would go on to compete in multiple sports and win the Land Rover Above and Beyond Award.
