Prince Harry was inspired by seeing injured servicemen and women overcome their injuries and hardships. In 2014 he created the first ever Invictus games that brought together over 400 different athletes from 13 countries, and 65,000 spectators. In 2016 the games will find an all new host, and he just happens to live in a Magic Kingdom.
The Invictus games uses the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for all those who serve their country as well as their families and caregivers. In 2016 the event will go from being hosted in England to being hosted in Orlando, at Walt Disney World in the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.
The games will bring together 14 nations competing in 10 sports – archery, cycling, indoor rowing, sitting volleyball, swimming, track and field, triathlon, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby and wheelchair tennis.
