I Am a Spark

It all started with a story.

A story about servicemen and women who faced the horrors of combat and returned home with life-changing injuries; however, no one wants to be defined by their injuries. They wanted to move on with their lives. So, in 2013, on a trip to the Warrior Games in the USA, The Duke of Sussex saw first-hand how the power of sports can help physically, psychologically, and socially those suffering from injuries and illness.

And that’s where the Invictus Games were born. Inspired, the Duke named the games “Invictus” because it means “unconquered,” which he felt perfectly embodied the fighting spirit of wounded, injured, and sick service personnel. It personified what these people can achieve after an injury. The Games harness the power of sports to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation, and generate a wider understanding and respect for those who serve their country.
