THE INVICTUS GAMES, ORLANDO 2016

This inspirational, international sports event was conceived by HRH Prince Harry, for wounded, injured and sick service personnel. The inaugural games took place in London in 2014, also supported by Jaguar Land Rover. The second will be staged in Orlando, USA, in May 2016. The world’s largest adaptive sporting event, it will be bigger and better than ever.

PRESENTING THE INVICTUS GAMES

Jaguar Land Rover are pleased to be the presenting partner of the 2016 Invictus Games in Orlando.

At Jaguar Land Rover, we’re supporting the Invictus Games 2016 in a variety of ways, including sponsorship, volunteering and staging events. But our commitment to our inspiring and heroic ex-service personnel reaches far beyond the event itself. We are continually exploring opportunities to enhance the role of veterans as skilled employees.

THE ATHLETES

ZOE WILLIAMS – SWIMMING AND ROWING

UK TEAM

Formerly a Welfare Officer in the Royal Navy and synchronised swimmer, Zoe Williams has fought mental and physical battles to take to the water once more for the Invictus Games. Her inspirational message? ‘Exercise has given me back the parts of my life that injury took away from me.’

ZOE WILLIAMS – UK SWIMMING

‘I am notorious for having really bad nerves. I absolutely hate standing on the starting blocks,’ says Zoe Williams. ‘But as soon as I’m on the blocks, coiled back and ready to dive into the pool I forget about everything else.’ Williams admits to being highly competitive and loves the excitement of never knowing what’s going to happen next.

THE ATHLETES

WILL REYNOLDS – SPRINTING AND CYCLING

US TEAM

Command came naturally to Will Reynolds as captain in the US Army and, having won 4 medals in the 2014 games, he’s now Captain of the US team. As a college gymnast who switched to endurance running in the Army, he’s rebooted his sporting prowess using a prosthetic blade, having lost his leg during operations.

WILL REYNOLDS - US TEAM CAPTAIN AND ATHLETE

Wounded by an IED in 2004 in Iraq, Will Reynolds understands life’s challenges. ‘If you’ve never been taken to difficult places then you’ll never realise your full potential.’ His 7-year-old son is very interested in his varied technical adaptations, and his 5-year-old daughter imitates his different running styles. It’s inspiring for them - they have no concept of their father’s abilities as ‘disabilities’.
