Invictus is a Latin adjective that is synonymous with the words: unconquered, undefeated, and invincible. Nowhere is this more evident than the aptly named Invictus Games. The event is an international sporting event involving men and women, both currently serving and veterans, who are injured, wounded, or sick.
About Invictus Games
The purpose of the games are multifaceted. First, it embodies the fighting spirit that defines these warriors on and off the fields of battle using sports and the challenge of competition to inspire recovery. It also makes use of the conditioning and training involved to help support rehabilitation. Then, the games themselves foster a wider understanding, by the public of, and a greater depth of respect for, all the men and women who serve their countries.
After visiting the 2013 Warrior Games in Colorado, Prince Harry was inspired to bring events like this to a wider, international, audience in an effort to aid wounded warriors socially, psychologically, and physically. The first Invictus Games were held in London in 2014 and involved more than 400 competitors representing 13 nations.
