A video challenge led by Invictus Games competitors and other members of the Invictus family has been created to help bring some fun and light-hearted relief in the uncertain times we are experiencing.
The name of the challenge, #Invictus20to21, also reflects that this year’s Invictus Games at the Hague have been postponed to 2021 in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Invictus Games Foundation has been working on ways to “develop its digital spaces to promote positive mental and physical health for wounded, injured and sick (WIS) veterans.”
Invictus20to21 aims to be a bit of fun that also hopes to help to spread the message of keeping fit both mentally and physically while in lockdown. The challenge involves 20 repetitions of an exercise of your choice and one for the Hague - so in total, 21 repetitions.
Invictus athletes and friends have been filming themselves taking part from all over the world, including the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, New Zealand and Jordan. Here are some of their videos:
The fun challenge is helping the athletes to remain connected to each other while they are unable to compete at the Invictus Games, and are keep up their training regimes from home.
Not only have they done the exercises but the videos have given them chance to be creative as well. One even features a blow torch and a toy car.
