Invictus Games athletes named for Team Australia

This September, 31 athletes from Australia will compete in the Invictus Games, an international multi-sport event for military personnel who have been wounded, injured, or become ill during their service. The team, which consists of both current and former members of the Australian Defence Force, has been praised by Minister for Defence Personnel and Veterans’ Affairs, The Hon Matt Keogh MP, who commends Invictus Australia’s mission to support the well-being and recovery of veterans and their families through sport.

What is the Invictus Games?

Invictus Australia is a program run by the Australian International Military Games, a not-for-profit charity that organised the Invictus Games Sydney 2018. The organisation used to be called Veteran Sport Australia (VSA) and was created after the Sydney Games to show appreciation for defense service personnel and provide support for veterans and their families. Invictus Australia is a continuation of the promise to keep supporting veterans and their families through sports. On October 28th, 2021, VSA was rebranded as Invictus Australia.

What events will Australia be competing in at the 2023 Invictus Games?

The Australian competitors will join over 500 military personnel from 21 other nations and participate in sports including athletics, indoor rowing, powerlifting, road cycling, sitting volleyball, table tennis, swimming, wheelchair basketball, and wheelchair rugby. The 2023 Invictus Games is being held in Dusseldorf, Germany.
