The Invictus Games return this year after a two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic precautions. This means that the 2022 games will be basically the 2020 Invictus games.
The games are a tournament of physical games and challenges, including running, archery, and wheelchair rugby pool. They create a platform for veterans, wounded and injured members of the armed forces to demonstrate their skills and resilience when faced with physical challenges.
To participate in the Games, it should be kept in mind that soldiers and women would benefit from participating in the Games as part of their recovery.
The word Invictus derives from the Latin, meaning “indomitable”. The title of the games is taken from a poem of the same name by William Ernest Henley.
