JACK Cummings could not hide his delight at winning the disability award.

The 29-year-old, from Didcot, received a warm reception from the Kassam Stadium crowd as he collected his honour at the Oxfordshire Sports Awards.

Cummings became a double-amputee in 2010 while serving in Afghanistan as a bomb disposal specialist.

He competed at the Invictus Games last September, which was created by Prince Harry for wounded or sick military personnel and veterans.

Cummings won bronze in the ISB 50m breaststroke.

He said: “Last year was incredible.

“It’s just a culmination of a journey since getting injured in Afghanistan and getting to that point to represent my country again and to being Jack.

“It’s been a hell of a journey.

“I was part of a bomb disposal search team, looking for an IED, but I wasn’t very good at it – I found it the wrong way.

“But I’m here to tell the tale.”
