Prince Harry attends launch of Invictus Games at the Tower of London
Britain’s Prince Harry attended the launch of the UK’s Invictus Games team at the Tower of London on Tuesday (May 30), meeting the 90 athletes who will compete at the Paralympic-style tournament in 2017.
Harry, the fifth in line to the British throne, set up the multi-sport Invictus Games three years ago for wounded military personal from allied nations.
The 2017 edition will take place in Toronto, Canada from Sept. 23-30 with more than 550 injured and wounded servicemen and women from 17 allied nations expected to take part in 12 adaptive sports.
The Invictus Game were held in London in 2014 and Orlando in 2016.
