Team Australia Invictus Games 2023 competitors announced

Today, Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Matt Keogh announced the incredible competitors who form Team Australia and will compete in the Invictus Games later this year.

31 competitors will represent Australia in Düsseldorf, Germany for the 6th Invictus Games in September. The Invictus Games is an international, adaptive multi-sports competition for current and former serving Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel who have been wounded, injured or become ill during their military service. Team Australia is supported by the ADF, DVA and Invictus Australia.

Team Australia will join more than 500 participants from 21 countries who will take part in the multi-sport event that will feature adaptive sports including athletics, indoor rowing, powerlifting, road cycling, sitting volleyball, table tennis, swimming, wheelchair basketball and wheelchair rugby.

Participation in sport and physical activity is such an important contributor to health and wellbeing, particularly during recovery and rehabilitation from injury or illness. Sport brings people together, instils mental resilience, provides opportunities to connect with broader communities and helps to create new friendships.

In 2022 the Australian Government awarded a $8.1 million dollar grant to Invictus Australia to support representation of Team Australia competitors at the 2023 Invictus Games. The funding is also being used to support Invictus Australia’s community sports programs domestically.

With only 144 days until the 2023 Games kick off, we are getting excited! We can’t wait to get behind all of the competitors, coaches and volunteers who will represent Australia at the next Invictus Games in Düsseldorf from the 9th September 2023.
