The Invictus Games – How It All Started?
The Invictus Games were launched on 6th March 2014 by Prince Harry Duke of Sussex, at London’s Copper Box Arena. He got this idea after his visit to the Warrior Games in Colorado USA in 2013, where he witnessed the ability of sport to help physically, socially, and psychologically, and wished to hold similar sporting international games in the United Kingdom. With the help of Mayor of London Boris Johnson, the London Organizing Committee of the Olympics, and the Ministry of defense, and with funding of £1million provided by the Royal Foundation, he was able to launch the Invictus Games in 2014.
The international Invictus Games was founded for wounded service members and veterans. Prince Harry served a decade in the British army and had two tours in Afghanistan which inspired him to establish a Paralympic-style Competitive event demonstrating the unconquerable spirit of injured, ill, wounded servicemen and women. Therefore, he launched the Invictus Games.
At November 2021 Gala at New York City’s Intrepid Museum, Prince Harry informed the media that he created the Invictus Games to honor soldiers and the legacy of those who provided safety and security to the citizens and also to show that the men and women who experienced injuries while providing their services, and also their families who suffered with them, are the strongest people surviving on the earth and deserve a platform to be recognized, a platform to be seen and a platform to get in the limelight to tell the world about their sacrifices.
