Let the Games Begin!
The Invictus Games are a series of Paralympic-style events in which wounded or sick armed services personnel and veterans compete (please see the "Getting the Royal Treatment" post dated January 31 for my first reference to the Invictus Games). The inaugural Invictus Games were held in London in September 2014; this year's events take place May 8-12 in Orlando. The following is a list of the events: archery, Jaguar and Land Rover driving, indoor rowing, powerlifting, road cycling, sitting volleyball, swimming, track and field, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby, and wheelchair tennis.
