The Invictus Games ended with a spectacular concert which was opened by the pipes and drums from The Brigade of Gurkhas mainly from the 2nd Battalion The Royal Gurkha Rifles.

He demonstrated his great skills through out the tournament as the most experienced player whereas Rfn Anil Gurung and Vinod Budhathoki both ex-Gurkha Servicemen played their part well to let the team GB win a gold.  Vinod also participated on the road cycling on the third day of the Invictus Games.index images





Overall,  The Invictus Games has helped all the wounded, injured and sick service personnel to prove themselves that each of them are a credit to the nation.  Prince Harry said-” These Games have shone a spotlight on the ‘unconquerable’ character of service men and women and their families, their ‘invictus’ spirit.  The game has marked the end of one chapter and the beginning of a new one.”
