Formby man wins Gold at Invictus Games 2016
Photographs by D Ashcroft.

A former Marine has come home victorious after winning a gold medal on the final day of this year's Invictus Games, The games took place at ESPN Wide World of Sports and Walt Disney World, in Orlando, Florida, on Thursday, 12 May 2016. Alex Krol, from Formby along with teammate, the former soldier, Andy McErlean beat the New Zealand team 6-1, in the wheelchair doubles tennis. This was an outstanding performance and the winning pair were later presented their gold medal by Prince Harry. In the interview we did with Alex, he promised us he would bring back Gold from Florida and he has not disappointed. He was joined at the event year by his pregnant wife, Jayne, who was Miss Merseyside in 2003. What an amazing thing to be able to tell their child in years to come! Well done, and we look forward to the follow up interview... These photos have been kindly taken for us by Mrs Diane Ashcroft, when she met up with them at the event.  To play the interview we did with Andy, just before he set off to the games, please click on here now.
