Team Captain – Robert Como


Team Captain of the Italian 2023 team is Brigadier General Roberto Como:

“If we want a better world, it is necessary to have knowledge, understanding and respect for all those who experience situations of difficulty and weakness, above all by helping the most fragile to undertake their own path of physical and psychological recovery. Only in this way is it possible to build a better and more inclusive society. As Team Captain, I set myself the goal of being a point of reference and an example for my teammates, to be their constant reference of fairness, respect for the rules and towards other competitors. All my team is excited and happy that our Family & Friends will share our experience of the INVICTUS GAMES DÜSSELDORF 2023.”
