    Invictus Games Sydney

    Anyone been watching the Invictus Games?

    Being held in Sydney and I think finishes tomorrow.

    Some amazing individuals, disabled but incredible guts and determination.

    Guys with only one arm, no legs and swimming 50m.

    They talked to two guys that were in the sailing on Sydney Harbour, I think they were from Holland. Turns out the guy that is paraplegic, was shot by friendly fire in I think Afghanistan.

    It took years before the two of them met in a bar and now they sail race together.

    This dude was originally going to be a pianist, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    This guy is amazing......

    "Another experiment for Ormrod was the 50-metre breaststroke, which he won after learning an adapted version of the swimming style just 45 minutes before the race on Wednesday night."I only entered it last night because there was only one entrant, so I wanted to give the crowd a race," he said.
    "I had a quick little go just now in the warm-up pool and I think I figured it out."

    More impressive are the guys that compete in races like Tough Mudder and Spartan against everyday fit as hell people.

    I think the main aim is for ex military but they include other disabilities, like today they had kids in track events that have Cerebral Palisaie

    The crowds have been good and their cheering for everyone so loud and the emotions on the athletes and kids was great to watch.

    The kids, when finished, didn't want to get off the track 555555
