Prince Harry Climbs Sydney Harbour Bridge to Hoist Invictus Flag

SYDNEY – Prince Harry, along with Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison, climbed on Friday to the top of Sydney Harbour Bridge to hoist the flag of the Invictus Games, which he had created for disabled armed services personnel and veterans.

Prince Harry and Scott Morrison were accompanied by Luke Hill, Ruth Hunt, Heidi Joosten and Michael Lyddiard, members of the Australian team that will take part in the competition, which will be held in Sydney from Oct. 20-28.

“The Sydney Harbour Bridge is an Australian icon and I can think of no better place to raise the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 flag,” said Morrison before beginning the climb.

Prince Harry launched the Invictus Games in 2014, a year after attending the Warrior Games in the United States and seeing the positive impact of sports in rehabilitation and recovery of troops wounded in combat.

London hosted the first edition of the Games in 2014 in which more than 400 competitors from 13 countries took part.

In the current edition, 500 athletes from 18 nations will be taking part.

The prince and his wife Meghan’s current visit to Australia is a part of their tour of Oceania, which also includes visits to Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.
