Founded by Prince Harry in 2014, the Invictus Games is an international sporting event for wounded, injured and ill veteran and defence personnel, that celebrates the healing power of sport. 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.
Sydney will host more than 500 competitors and around 1000 family and friends for the eight-day event being held from 20-27 October 2018. The Games will feature competition in eleven sports including Archery, Athletics, Indoor Rowing, Power Lifting, Road Cycling, Sailing, Sitting Volleyball, Swimming, Wheelchair Basketball, Wheelchair Rugby and Wheelchair Tennis. Sporting events will be held across greater Sydney, including Sydney Olympic Park and on and around Sydney Harbour.
