After two postponements, the Invictus Games is back this year in The Hague.

Originally scheduled for 2020, the games were postponed twice due to coronavirus but are now set to go ahead.

Five hundred competitors will face off in 10 sports – athletics, archery, cycling, indoor rowing, the Land Rover Driving Challenge, powerlifting, sitting volleyball, swimming, wheelchair basketball and wheelchair rugby.

There are 20 countries competing in The Hague, including a debut for Belgium's team.

Kicking off on Saturday 16 April with the opening ceremony and the Land Rover Driving Challenge, the games will run throughout the week before finishing on Friday 22 April.

The games will take place in and around the Zuiderpark, a large park to the south of The Hague.

Stretching across 105 acres, the Zuiderpark will also host music, entertainment, sports clinics, lectures and demonstrations – with all of the side events free to access for those attending the games.

There will also be military demonstrations taking place, with the different services of the Dutch armed forces presenting their equipment and putting on displays for the crowd.
