Are You #Ready For The Invictus Games?

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Jaguar.

Invictus means unconquered. Invictus Games competitors are the men and women who have come face-to-face with the reality of making a sacrifice for their country. They are people who put their lives on the line in the course of duty and suffered life-changing injuries. In the face of adversity they have overcome fear and trauma and redefined themselves.

This is the first ever Invictus Games for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women, and brings with it powerful stories of survival, recovery, rehabilitation and life beyond disability. Led by Prince Harry and presented by Jaguar Land Rover, 400 competitors from 14 nations will take part in four days of exciting and inspiring sporting action in former London 2012 venues at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and at Lee Valley Athletics Centre.

Are you #Ready to get behind these remarkable competitors? Jaguar is asking you to show your support for them and the Invictus Games by using the #Ready hashtag on Twitter and Instagram. Add your message of support and you could be rewarded with tickets to key events at the nearly sold out games or to the definitely sold out Closing Concert, headlined by Foo Fighters.
