Did y’all see this? Prince Harry (Prince Henry of Wales), is bringing his Invictus Games to Walt Disney World Resort next year. I am personally super excited to see this event coming to the United States and Disney.
The event will celebrate our wounded servicemen and women from around the world competing in a variety of sports events at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, May 8-12, 2016.
The Invictus Games at Disney next year will be the first time the event takes place in the U.S. and is expected to involve a similar number of athletes from up to 14 nations competing in 10 sports – archery, cycling, indoor rowing, sitting volleyball, swimming, track and field, triathlon, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby and wheelchair tennis.
The idea behind the Invictus Games is that the event uses the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for all those who serve their country as well as their families and caregivers.
The Invictus Games Foundation was established to pursue and develop the legacy of the Invictus Games, Prince Harry’s sporting event for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women. The inaugural event took place in 2014.
