Registration is closed

The Invictus Games is an international adaptive multi-sport competition for serving and former serving military personnel who have been wounded, injured or become ill during their military service. The 2018 Invictus Games will be held in Sydney from 20 - 27 October. The Games will attract competitors from 18 nations who will compete in 11 adaptive sports events.

In this presentation, USI member Brigadier Phil Winter will explain the importance of adaptive sports for the wounded, injured and ill in the serving and ex-serving military community. He will describe how the 2018 Sydney Games can be a focal point for raising awareness of the power of sport in improving the lifestyles and general wellbeing of our ADF community, and give an update on how the Australian Defence Force and Returned & Services League are preparing the team. Phil will be accompanied by two athletes - Ben Farinazzo and Tiffany White - who will speak about their own experiences as Invictus competitors.

This event is slightly outside USI's usual remit - but one not to be missed! Don't forget to join us for networking in the ADC Mess from 1700 hours.
