What is Invictus Games? An international Paralympic-style sporting event which were created by the Prince of Wales in 2014 after he attended the U.S. Warrior Games the year before.

“The Invictus Games seeks to change perceptions of physical and mental injury,” Prince Harry said in October 2015 when he attended a wheelchair-basketball scrimmage in the United States. “One thing we have to talk about more is breaking down these barriers around so-called invisible injuries, like post-traumatic stress, just as we have for physical injuries like the loss of a limb.”
