Ibrar (Ibi) served in the British Army as an Infantry Officer in The Yorkshire Regiment for almost 12 years. He was injured by a roadside bomb in 2007 resulting in his right arm being amputated below the elbow. He counts himself as being lucky as he was able to remain in service and return on frontline duty to Iraq and Afghanistan.

In 2013, Ibi was a part of the successful WWTW expedition to the South Pole. His passion for helping his fellow injured servicemen and women has come to the fore now that he has left service himself. Ibi is an ‘enthusiastic amateur’ runner with several marathons under his belt, he is least looking forward to running in the heat. On the flip side, he thinks the camaraderie between the WWTW team, and other runners, will be the deciding factor on him completing the gruelling 7 days of the MdS. You can sponsor Ibi here.
