UNCONQUERED 2.0. - UKRAINE’S FIRST MULTISPORT ONLINE COMPETITION FOR WOUNDED SERVICEMEN AND VETERANS
The Organizing Committee of the Invictus Games in Ukraine is happy to announce the start of the first online competition for wounded servicemen and veterans – "Unconquered 2.0."
Due to the quarantine restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is not possible to hold competitions in its usual format in 2020. Still, we remain a community of the unconquered, who can’t be stopped by external obstacles, and we will keep ensuring the continuity of the rehabilitation and adaptation process of wounded veterans and servicemen through their involvement in sports no matter what. In other words, we are creating new formats and new opportunities.
THAT IS WHY WE ANNOUNCE UNCONQUERED 2.0 ONLINE!
Unconquered 2.0 is the first multi-sport online competition in Ukraine aimed at promoting the recovery and rehabilitation of war veterans and active servicemen, members of the security and defense sector of Ukraine and volunteer groups, who have suffered from injuries, mutilations, contusions or other diseases received during the time or as a result of their service in a combat zone.
As a special courtesy to the US AF Wounded Warrior Program we have extended the invitation to the wounded veterans and active duty servicemen of the US Air Force. This is our way of appreciating and thanking the US AF Wounded Warrior Program for continuous support of Ukrainian Invictus Games Team and wounded warriors of Ukraine through these difficult times of COVID-19 world pandemic.
