Hosted this year by Orlando USA it sees many country’s competing. Not only is it a special competition for those in the armed forces it brings them together and gives many a goal to pick them selves back up following the injury and the horrors of war.
The Invictus games was set up in 2014 in London so Jaguar Land Rover have been there since the beginning. The word “invictus” is Latin and means “unconquered” – so the games symbolise strength in adversity.
