Invictus Games - Inspirational Achievements

In my role as Minister for Defence Personnel and Veterans at the MOD, I had the honour of supporting Team GB at the Invictus Games in Orlando last month.

Our incredibly inspiring athletes achieved 49 gold, 46 silver and 36 bronze medals, from the 108 team members, which is quite a haul.

We must remember, however, that it's not just about the winning, but the amazing contribution of our Armed Forces community and veterans who against all odds have overcome the mental and physical obstacles placed before them to compete in the games.
