Prince Harry opens Invictus games for military disabled


MIAMI: Britain’s Prince Harry on Sunday opened the Invictus games for disabled war veterans and awarded the first gold of the 2016 event to France. Harry, fifth in line to the throne and patron of the games, welcomed sportsmen, women and supporters to the huge event in Orlando, Florida, being broadcast by sports network ESPN. “Their stories are as amazing as they are unique. They focus on what can be achieved, rather than what can’t,” Harry said of the ex-servicemen and women, many of whom are amputees, who suffer higher than average rates of depression as well as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury.
