Since its creation by Prince Harry, the Invictus Games has championed the sporting prowess of wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and their associated veterans in an international adaptive multi-sport event.



In the lead up to the games, which this year runs from 20–27 October, host Phil Tarrant is joined by athlete Andrew Wilkinson who will be competing in a total of eight events across cycling, swimming and running. Wilkinson will share how his journey, which saw him injured in his first race as a professional triathlete, has seen him become involved with the Invictus Games, and discuss the process of selection.

He will unpack his strenuous training regime, the team culture that he experienced as a part of the Invictus Games camp and what is next for him as an athlete following the games.
