To mark what would have been the Invictus Games this year, the Invictus Games Foundation and the Invictus Games The Hague 2022 are inviting the Global Invictus Community to a digital Games Week.
Normally we would all be in The Hague now to celebrate the fifth Invictus Games. Due to the Corona pandemic, the Invictus Games The Hague had to be postponed twice and is now scheduled to take place from 16 to 22 April 2022. To celebrate the global Invictus community during this difficult time, the Invictus Games Foundation and Invictus Games The Hague have decided to host a digital games week during the week the Games were originally scheduled to take place.
From 29 May to 4 July, there are a series of online events, that started with the digital #LapOfHolland. The Invictus Family attempted to complete a virtual circumnavigation of the Netherlands in just 24 hours! Teams walked, ran, cycled, rowed and swam wherever they were. The result: the Netherlands was digitally circumnavigated six times. A distance of almost 9,000km was covered!
The digital Games Week also included an online training session with Team Netherlands, which everyone could participate in from home, and the next iteration of the ‘Conversation’ series as a webinar. Finally, tomorrow 4 July, it culminates in a 24-hour ‘Meet of the Nations’ where each of the participating teams will present themselves, their athletes and their training. This physical challenge marks the fact that although it has been postponed due to the pandemic, in 2022 we will welcome teams to The Hague, Netherlands, for the fifth Invictus Games, 16-22 April 2022.
