An international sporting event for wounded, injured and ill veteran and active service personnel, the Invictus Games highlights the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation, and generate a wider understanding of and respect for those who serve their country. We have seen the lasting impact of the London and Orlando Games and look forward to what Sydney will bring in 2018.
