  • Published in VX-3 News

On a trip to the U.S. in 2013, Prince Harry who served as a helicopter pilot in the British army in Afghanistan, was inspired to set up a Paralympic-style event for ex-soldiers.

The word 'Invictus' was chosen to describe the games as it means 'unconquered' and said he hoped the power of sport could help these injured military personnel recover.

VX3 will be the official kit supplier for the Invictus Games of 2017.
