If you’ve been following my blog series, then you know the story. How I started as a mere idea – a spark – and then transformed into the award I am today.

One that personifies what these veterans can achieve after an injury - a courageous and strong group of athletes. One that embodies the spirit of the Invictus Games. One that inspires countless people to strive for greatness.

That’s who I am – who I become.

I Am an Award

After the hard work, sacrifice, and fierce competition, the winners are standing on a podium. They are receiving me.

I am capturing hearts, challenging minds and bodies, and changing lives. I am what so many have worked and strived for. I am the symbol of hope, strength, comradery, and competition. This is what it means to be more than a design or a spark of an idea. More than a prototype. And more than the hats or shirts the competitors are wearing. I am unique. I am a symbol. I mean something – so much to so many!

I have never felt so alive!

I am an award!

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.
