The opening of the Invictus Games was set in Toronto on Saturday. This is the annual sporting event created specifically for wounded veterans by Prince Harry. More than 550 injured and wounded servicemen and women from 17 allied nations are taking part in 12 adaptive sports in the games.
The name "Invictus" symbolizes the way that sport can help wounded soldiers overcome trauma suffered in combat. The Games have been held twice before, in London and in Orlando. It will end on September 30th.
