INVICTUS
GAMES

The English Tour 2016, Alberta, Montreal, Eastern European Festivals in Toronto photos are all taking a break.

The third ever Invictus Games is happening in Toronto right now. Seeing the athletes compete is very inspiring and moving.

Seventeen nations are participating: Afghanistan, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, France, Georgia, Germany, Iraq, Italy, Jordan, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Romania, Ukraine, United Kingdom and the United States of America.

Partial quote from Wikipedia:

"The Invictus Games is an international Paralympic-style multi-sport event, created by advisors of Prince Harry, in which wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and their associated veterans take part in sports competition. Named after Invictus, Latin for "unconquered" or "undefeated", the event was inspired by the Warrior Games, a similar event held in the United States."

The 1st ever Invictus Games was held in London in 2014, the 2nd one in Orlando in 2016, and the 3rd in Toronto in 2017, and the 4th one will be in Sydney in 2018.

Thank you Keith. I'm normally not very emotional but before each game, the announcer would tell us a bit about each competitor and some of their stories made my eyes wet!
