Athletic before he was injured, Sgt. Scotty A. Hasting rediscovered a passion while he recovered at the Warrior Transition Battalion (WTB) at Fort Riley, Kansas: sports. Hasting sustained severe wounds after being shot 10 times at a 10-foot range in Afghanistan in 2011.

Hasting started participating in sports about eight months into his recovery at the WTB. He took that determination and drive to the 2014 U.S. Army Warrior Trials, where he left with six medals: bronze in archery and shooting, and three gold and one silver for different swimming events.

“My wife has been with me through my whole training and continues to support me,” said Hasting of the motivation he receives from his Family. “She encourages me to push past the limits I set for myself.”

Hasting takes that encouragement and enthusiasm to Colorado, where he represents team Army at the 2014 Warrior Games, competing in archery and swimming.

“After my injury, I did not think I would be able to compete or play sports,” he said. “Incredible—it’s going to be incredible being able to represent the Army and to be able to compete at that level.”
