THE third annual Invictus Games officially kick off in Toronto, Canada, on Saturday.

The Invictus Games, created by Prince Harry, is an event for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women, shining a light on their sacrifices but also offering a challenge and pursuit that those who once wore a military uniform can often sorely miss.

After serving in Afghanistan, Harry was introduced to the Warrior Games during a trip to the U.S. in 2013. He made it his mission to create an event similar and as a result, the Prince launched the seven-day sporting event in September 2014.

The title comes from the Latin word “invictus,” meaning unconquered or undefeated and the competition features more than 550 competitors from 17 nations and a dozen sports, including archery, cycling, golf, indoor rowing, and wheelchair basketball.

Harry has already announced that the fourth Invictus Games will take place in Sydney, Australia, in October 2018.
