Invictus Games: 10 - 14 September 2014

In September 2014, London played host to over 400 wounded, injured and sick Service Personnel, and Veterans, from 13 nations. These wounded warriors competed in the Invictus Games, which used the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for those who serve, or have served, their country.

Prince Harry Invictus Games at Tedworth House Help for Heroes

The Invictus Games were organised with the support and backing of The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry and the Ministry of Defence. Competitors took part in nine sports: Athletics; Archery; Wheelchair Basketball; Road Cycling; Powerlifting; Indoor Rowing; Wheelchair Rugby; Swimming; and Sitting Volleyball.

Help for Heroes were proud to support the Ministry of Defence in the training, selection and delivery of the British Armed Forces Team for the inaugural Invictus Games, as part of our extensive Sports Recovery Programme.

After 67 days of training and 497 coaching hours Help for Heroes were able to select their 130-strong team, who are continuing their training efforts between now and the games.
