The Invictus Games 2018 will attract competitors from 18 nations who will compete in 11 adaptive sports events from October 20. 

The event is an international adaptive multi-sport competition for serving and former serving military personnel who've been wounded, injured or become ill during their military service.

On a trip to the Warrior Games in the United States in 2013, The Duke of Sussex saw the positive impact sport could have on the recovery and rehabilitation of wounded, injured and ill servicemen and women.

From there Prince Harry vowed to take the idea and launch a similar event in the UK.

The Invictus Games Foundation was established and in 2014 London hosted the inaugural Invictus Games, at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, with more than 400 competitors from 13 nations.

We're so proud to have Townsville representatives competing at the games in Sydney. 

The locals representing our country are:

Jeff Wright
Trudi Lines
Beau King
Damien Iris
Michael Lyddiard
Tim Grover
Peter Brown
Peter Arbuckle
Davin Bretherton

They may even be lucky enough to meet the Invictus game founder Prince Harry and his beautiful wife Meghan during the tournament. 

We wish our Townsville representatives the best of luck!
