An exciting profile series
Fri, 7 September 2018
Named after Invictus, Latin for “unconquered” or “undefeated”, the Invictus Games 2018 are coming to Sydney from 20-27 of October. The Games were created by Prince Harry to promote the importance of sport and physical activity in the rehabilitation journey of wounded, injured and ill serve members and veterans.
The Sydney Games will attract more than 500 competitors from 18 nations to compete in 11 adaptive sports and will recognise and thank families and friends for their role and the challenges they share in supporting wounded warriors. Some of the adaptive sports the competitors will be involved in include: archery, athletics, powerlifting, sitting volleyball, wheelchair basketball and wheelchair rugby.
In support of the games, 2RPH has lined up a couple of special programs. First, the Ablequest team have conducted an interview with the Invictus Games CEO Patrick Kidd, which, if you missed, you can listen to on podcast here.
Secondly, profiles of the 70 members of the Australian team competing in the Games will be featured in People in Profile with Ken Bock. The profiles will begin from the 19th of September and run until the 27th of October. Listeners will be able to tune in to People in Profile on Wednesday at 7pm and Saturday at 8:30pm, with repeats on Saturday at 7am and Thursday at 2:30pm. Be sure to listen to what will be a fascinating series about extraordinary people.
