Presented by Jaguar Land Rover and held in April 2022, the Invictus Games are a multi-national sporting event for wounded, ill and injured service people and veterans. With the Land Rover Driving Challenge kicking off the 2022 event, the games use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and create a greater understanding and respect for the experiences of the competitors.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were on hand to present the first medals after the Land Rover Driving Challenge. The French team of Christophe Collot and Franck Poirot emerged victorious to claim the gold in an event that tested competitors’ driving, navigation skills and team work. A specially built off-road course challenged teams with water obstacles, a rock crawl and steep inclines. Romania scooped Silver, with Georgia picking up the bronze medal.

“The long-awaited Games began in true Invictus style today – with passion, team work and sheer dedication. The commitment shown from every competitor was unprecedented. We celebrate each one of them and all those who played a part in their journey here today. I know everyone at Jaguar Land Rover wishes each of them the very best of luck for the rest of the Games.”
