(TORONTO, ON) – After a successful Invictus Games in London, England and Orlando, FL, they are coming to Canada. The Invictus Games are an international sporting competition for serving armed forces members and veterans who have a permanent physical or mental health illness or injury.
The Invictus Games harness the camaraderie of sport, the thrill of competition, and the quest for victory to help competitors rediscover and redefine themselves while inspiring others through their courage, perseverance, and athletic ability.
HRH Prince Harry created the international event after visiting the Warrior Games in Colorado in 2013. He envisaged how the power of sport could help wounded warriors physically, psychologically, and socially.
The Games will be held in Toronto from 24 through 30 September 2017. Over 600 competitors from 16 nations will gather to compete in 12 sports.
From archery to cycling, from powerlifting to swimming, and from wheelchair basketball to track and field, the time to register is now.
The Invictus Games are open to participants from the regular or reserve Canadian Armed Forces who have acquired a permanent physical or mental health injury or illness while serving.
