The Invictus Games, which were to be held in The Hague in May, will be postponed to 16 to 22 April 2022. It was previously announced that the sporting event for soldiers and veterans would not continue for the second time due to the coronacrisis. So now a new date has been announced.
“ Of course, it was a great disappointment, but understandably that the Invictus Games can not take place again,” says the organization in a statement. “We are still striving to deliver safe, surprising and impactful Games. As an organisation, we also want to show our invincibility and the Invictus Spirit.”
Patron Prince Harry
At the international sporting event, military and veterans who have been physically or physically injured in the army are participating. The Invictus Games are an initiative of British Prince Harry. The first edition was in London in 2014. At the previous edition, in 2018 in Sydney, thirteen sports were on the program.
Ten sports are on the program for the edition in The Hague: athletics, weightlifting, archery, indoor rowing, JLR Driving Challenge, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby, cycling, sitting volleyball and swimming.
