THE INVICTUS GAMES
Invictus games do not represent a mere tournament,being more than sheer sport. They generate a state of mind that steals our heart, challenge our thinking and change our lives. It is a project revolving around the idea of physical and psychological training and recovery through sport, which obviously has an educational part, too. Invictus games stimulate positive thinking, turn the military staff into kinder and self-assertive people, give hope to those who, overwhelmed by severe trauma, were not at all able to see the bright side of the picture. The injured servicemen managing to surpass their limits set an example for the entire society, instilling the sense of mutual humanity and team cohesion, beyond the well-known beneficial effects of sport and physical education.
