And the Invictus Games go to...Orlando, Fla.!
Prince Harry, who founded the Games, announced that the second tournament would take place in Orlando in 2016. The games will take place May 8-12 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Sharing the news via video message, the redheaded royal said that he always hoped the 2014 Invictus Games would be just the beginning of the story.
"As I've continued to work with wounded servicemen and women, I regularly see the power of the soldiers' stories to inspire others. For every competitor last September, there are hundreds of others around the world who would benefit from having the same opportunity. I wanted other cities and countries to look at the competition —what it meant to those taking part and those who saw it —and take up the challenge for the next Invictus Games," he said.
"I am absolutely delighted that the United States has taken up that challenge and will host the next Invictus Games in 2016. I have no doubt that the USA will set the bar even higher than London did and put on a great show."
