|The 130 strong British Armed Forces Team for the Invictus Games, presented by Jaguar Land Rover, has been announced.
The team, which has been trained and supported by Help for Heroes and the Ministry of Defence, is made up of veterans and serving members of the Armed Forces and it is the biggest British military sports team ever assembled from wounded, injured or sick men and women. The final team that will represent Great Britain has been selected on criteria such as their commitment to training, performance, progression in their sport and feedback from the Help for Heroes Sports Recovery coaches.
Having been put through their paces during nationwide trials, the selected competitors will now begin ramping up their training and focusing on The Games that begin on September 10.
