A former soldier from Cambridge whose leg was amputated after he trod on an IED in Afghanistan - is now going for gold at the Winter Paralympics.

Owen Pick, who's 26 and also a keen wake boarder, will be competing in the Snowboarding in Pyeonchang in South Korea.

There's also an added honour for Owen - he's also been chosen as ParalympicsGB flag bearer for the opening ceremony.
