From the Invictus Orlando Facebook Page:

“The Invictus Games is the only international adaptive sporting event for injured active duty and veteran service members. The Games harness sport, competition and the quest for victory to help competitors rediscover and redefine themselves on their journey to recovery.

After a successful Games in London 2014, the Invictus Games 2016 will take place May 8-12, at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida where hundreds of competitors from up to 14 nations will compete in 10 events. These heroes embody an “Invictus Spirit” that’s alive in all of us.

Prince Harry started the Invictus Games following an inspirational visit to the USA Warrior Games in 2013.”
