How the Invictus Games changed Afghanistan war veteran’s life

An Australian veteran says the Invictus Games changed his life after years in hospital.

Invictus Australia, previously known as Veteran Sport Australia, aims to strengthen the physical and mental wellbeing of veterans and their families through the power of sport.

Veteran Garry Robinson was on his last mission in Afghanistan in 2010 when the helicopter he was on crashed, killing four passengers and leaving him with critical injuries.

It was during a rehab session four years later that Garry learnt of the Invictus Games.

He has since competed in three Games.

Mr Robinson told Deborah Knight it changed his life.

“I’m very fortunate to have been involved in the Invictus community.”
