It will be ‘Game on Down Under’ when Australia welcomes competitors and their families for the Invictus Games Sydney 2018.
On a trip to the Warrior Games in the United States in 2013, The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, saw firsthand the positive impact sport could have on the recovery and rehabilitation of wounded, injured and ill servicemen and women. He vowed to take the idea and launch a similar event in the UK.
Thus the Invictus Games Foundation was established and in 2014, London hosted the inaugural Invictus Games, at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, with more than 400 competitors from 13 nations.
At the 2018 Games in Sydney, there’ll be more than 500 athletes from 18 nations including Afghanistan, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, France, Georgia, Germany, Iraq, Italy, Jordan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, Ukraine, United Kingdom and the US.
Events for the 4th Invictus Games will be run out of Sydney’s Olympic Park between October 20th and October 27th, giving Sydneysiders the perfect opportunity to get amongst the action and throw their support behind this worthy cause!
