I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley


Prince Harry set up the Invictus Games to honour and celebrate the athletic prowess of servicemen and women injured in the line of duty. Inspired by the Paralympics in 2012, The Invictus Games will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and will see over four hundred competitors from thirteen nations taking part.

Named eponymously after a poem by William Ernest Henley, the word 'Invictus' means 'unconquerable'. The Games's opening ceremony will begin at 6.30pm on the 10th September, followed by four days of sporting events, which includes athletics, wheelchair basket ball, wheelchair, rugby, sitting volleyball, archery, powerlifting, swimming, indoor rowing, and road cycling. It will then end with a closing ceremony on the 14th September. Tickets to sessions cost between 12.85 - 95.
