The fourth annual Invictus Games officially kick off in Sydney, Australia on Oct. 20, but before we go any further, you might be wondering what the Invictus Games are all about. After serving in Afghanistan, Prince Harry
was introduced to the Warrior Games during a trip to the Us in 2013. He made it his mission to create an event similar to it that used sports to help aid the physical, psychological, and social recovery of active-duty soldiers and veterans, and as a result, Harry 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.
