|Association / Organisation||Invictus Games|
On a trip to the Warrior Games in the USA in 2013, HRH The Duke of Sussex saw first-hand how the power of sport can help physically, psychologically and socially those suffering from injuries and illness. He was inspired by his visit and the Invictus Games was born.
The word ‘invictus’ means ‘unconquered’. It embodies the fighting spirit of wounded, injured and sick Service personnel and personifies what these tenacious men and women can achieve post injury. The Games harness the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for those who serve their country.
The Invictus Games The Hague 2020, will bring together over 500 competitors from 19 nations to compete in a series of nine adaptive sports. The sports include athletics, archery, indoor rowing, powerlifting, wheelchair basketball, swimming, road cycling, sitting volleyball and wheelchair rugby.
Events will be held across the Dutch city over the course of a week. The link below will take you to the site for the 2020 Games.
