YOU CAN BE AT IN­VIC­TUS

Central Telegraph - - READ -

Syd­ney will host the fourth In­vic­tus Games from Oc­to­ber 20–27. The Games were started by Prince Harry, who was in­spired by an event he at­tended for wounded vet­er­ans in the US. He launched a large-scale multi-na­tion event after see­ing the pos­i­tive im­pact sport could have on the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and re­cov­ery of ser­vice men and women who had been wounded, in­jured or fallen ill in the line of duty. More than 500 ath­letes from 18 coun­tries, in­clud­ing Iraq, Jor­dan and Ukraine, will com­pete in Syd­ney in 11 medalled sports and two fea­ture events. Some events are tick­eted and oth­ers – road cy­cling, sail­ing and a driv­ing chal­lenge – are free to at­tend. The games will be broad­cast on the ABC.

YOU GET BACK ON THE HORSE AND MAKE THE BEST OF THE SIT­U­A­TION LIFE HAS GIVEN YOU.
