Invictus Games: The ultimate competition

-

The Invictus Games have everything. Hardcore competition, handsome heroes, and literal royalty. 

 
Veterans come from as far the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and Iraq to compete in everything from archery to wheelchair rugby. Prince Harry was inspired to create the international paralympic event after participating in the U.S. Warrior Games in 2013.
 
The Invictus Games honor service members and also battle the stigma that many wounded service men and women face. Watch video above for full story.
