Injured veterans compete for the gold in the 2016 Invictus Games. Prince Harry founded the event in 2014 to remind wounded veterans that they are “unconquered”. This year, over 500 competitors from 15 countries are gathered in Orlando, Florida. The athletes compete in events ranging from sitting volleyball to track and field, and even archery. Every one of them was injured in the line of duty. Competing in adaptive sports has proven to help disabled veterans conquer stress, find belonging, and achieve independence. Even after sacrificing it all for their countries, these heroes are still conquering.
