2014 Invictus Games, September 10-14, London, United Kingdom

“I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.” – “Invictus,” by William Ernest Henley


William Ernest Henley’s poem inspires strength and the will to withstand even the most challenging situations, mirroring the warrior ethos that all Soldiers and Veterans possess. This sentiment is reflected in the Invictus Games, an international competition for wounded, ill and injured service members inspired by Prince Harry’s visit to the 2013 Warrior Games in Colorado.

More than 400 wounded, ill and injured service members representing 13 different countries will compete in London, September 10-14 in the inaugural Invictus Games. Teams will come from the armed forces of nations that served alongside each other. The Games will use the power of sports to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation, and generate a wider understanding and respect of those who serve their country.

Soldiers recovering and transitioning in Warrior Transition Units in the United States create a Comprehensive Transition Plan that covers six domains: career, physical, emotional, social, Family and spiritual. Adaptive reconditioning activities, including sports, connect physical activities to each of these domains.
