The Invictus Games are coming to America.
The inaugural Invictus Games in London 2014 used the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women. The Invictus Games Foundation has been set up to develop this legacy, manage the process of selecting the hosts of future games and oversee their delivery. The next Invictus Games will take place in Orlando, 8th-12th May 2016 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
Prince Harry [who is the Games' patron] recently announced that the Invictus story will continue and that there will be a third Invictus Games in Toronto, Canada in September 2017.
Since this is a charity that benefits wounded warriors and it's coming here, the Obamas sent a challenge to Prince Harry via Twitter:
