2017 Invictus Games

The Australian Defence Force (ADF) and the Returned and Services League (RSL) are supporting a combined team of 43 athletes to compete at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto, Canada from 23–30 September 2017.

The 2017 team members are listed on the Australian Team page.

The athletes are supported by dedicated coaches and a full medical and management team.

The 2017 Invictus Games will bring together over 550 athletes from 17 nations, who have become wounded, injured or ill during their service, in a celebration of tenacity and courage.

The Invictus Games is an initiative of Prince Harry and is an international adaptive sport competition using the power of sport to motivate recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding of the sacrifices made by the men and women who serve their country.

Athletes selected to form the 2017 team will have the opportunity to compete in a range of adaptive sports including wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby, wheelchair tennis, archery, athletics, indoor rowing, powerlifting, road cycling, sitting volleyball, swimming, and new to the 2017 games, golf.
