Team BRIT's story to be shown as part of Invictus Games coverage


Team BRIT's story will be shown as part of the BBC's coverage of the Invictus Games.


The Games, which are held this year in Toronto, are an international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick service personnel.

The Games were founded by Prince Harry after he visited the Warrior Games in the USA in 2013 and saw how the power of sport could help physically, psychologically and socially. 

The word ‘Invictus’ means ‘unconquered’. It embodies the fighting spirit of the wounded, injured and sick service personnel and what these tenacious men and women can achieve, post injury. The Games harness the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation, and generate a wider understanding and respect for those who serve their country.


The BBC's Invictus Team joined Team BRIT at their recent Snetterton race to capture fascinating footage to tell every part of their story, from the individual backgrounds of drivers to the cutting edge technology designed to allow disabled drivers to race competitively.

Team Founder Dave Player said, “We were approached by the BBC who were keen to include our story as part of their coverage of this fantastic event.

“Team BRIT embodies the ethos of the games completely – we share a passion and belief for supporting and rehabilitating injured troops through sport, and we are proud to be part of the BBC’s coverage of this event.”


BBC Coverage begins on the 24th September. Programme details will be released soon. More information on the Invictus Foundation can be found at www.invictusgamesfoundation.org.
