I am absolutely delighted that the United States has taken up that challenge and will host the next Invictus Games in 2016. I have no doubt that the USA will set the bar even higher than London did and put on a great show.

HRH PRINCE HARRY
ABOUT THE GAMES

The Invictus Games is an international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women. The second games takes place in Orlando from 8th until 12th May, with 500 competitors from 15 countries. These heroes have overcome incredible adversity to compete.

A ROYAL INITIATIVE

HRH Prince Harry conceived the games after a visit to The Warrior Games in the USA in 2013. He witnessed how sport could help veterans physically, psychologically and socially.

SUPPORTING THE SECOND GAMES

Land Rover supported the inaugural games in London in 2014. As Presenting Partner, we’re proud to do so again.

SUPPORTING BEYOND THE GAMES

Our commitment to our heroic service personnel reaches far beyond the event itself. We are continually exploring opportunities to enhance the role of veterans as skilled employees.

JASON ELLIS – WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL

US TEAM

A roadside blast in Iraq may have cut short Jason Ellis’s military career, but it didn’t stop his winning streak at basketball. Seamlessly moving from able-bodied basketball to the wheelchair game, Ellis now believes the latter is more exciting to play and watch. A Florida native, he’s hoping to beat the Brits on his home soil at the Orlando Invictus Games 2016.

JASON ELLIS - US WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL

Jason Ellis loves everything about wheelchair basketball, from spinning on a wheel to reading the defense. With the speed of the game and the movement of the chair, it excites both players and the watching crowd. ‘I’m actually doing more now that what I had done before I incurred my injuries,’ he says.

CHARLIE WALKER – WHEELCHAIR RUGBY

UK TEAM

Charlie Walker was training as a bomb-disposal technician when he lost his legs to meningitis. He soon discovered wheelchair rugby and scored the winning try in the 2014 Invictus Games. ‘Life is continuously giving me obstacles to overcome, but the moment I let them get in the way is the moment I let someone else win.’

CHARLIE WALKER – UK WHEELCHAIR RUGBY

A double, below-knee amputee following meningitis, Charlie Walker says, ‘When you’re in the Army you’re used to working in tight units. Team sports gives you that feeling back.’ His injury handed him the sporting career he had dreamed of as a child, and he’s now Captain of the GB team. ‘Scoring the winning points for your country - you can’t ask for more than that.’
