Prince Harry has revealed the 'horrendous' sights he witnessed during his two tours of Afghanistan and explained that the harrowing experience was his inspiration for launching the Invictus Games.
The Royal, a Captain in the Army, regularly flew injured personnel and civilians to the hospital at the Camp Bastion military base during his second tour of the country when he served as an Apache helicopter pilot.
He told how he could close his eyes 'and hundreds of images' would flash through his mind - among them memories of children struck by roadside bombs and of wounded soldiers lying on the battlefield.
Writing in the Sunday Times, he said the question of how to move on from the painful memories - and injuries - of war was one that he had often considered. And shared that he thinks sport might be the answer.

Prince Harry urges British team to 'beat everybody else' in Invictus Games - Telegraph
13 August 2014

Prince Harry urges British team to 'beat everybody else' in Invictus Games

The ultra-competitive Prince Harry has urged Britain’s team to “beat everybody else” when they take on other nations’ injured servicemen at the inaugural Invictus Games next month. The 29-year-old Prince spent more than an hour chatting to team members and posing for selfies as the 130-strong team was announced today.

He told them: “Guys and girls, I wish you all the very best of luck in the final weeks of training. We've got four weeks left, let's make sure we're in tip top condition to beat everybody else and bring back as many medals as we possibly can - not forgetting it's the taking part that counts!”

The Paralympics-style Games, which begin on September 10, have been organised by Prince Harry for wounded service personnel from 14 countries, and will be held at the Olympic Park in east London.

Standing in the sunshine next to City Hall on the south bank of the Thames, the Prince had to show his own speed out of the blocks when a gust of wind blew his speech off the lectern. He swiftly retrieved it and told his laughing audience: “No blowing from the left, thank you!” Flanked by cars supplied by the Games sponsor, Jaguar Land Rover, the Prince said: “Prosthetics, dogs, wheelchairs, high-performance cars, 4x4s, tattoos - we've got everything here. It could only be the Invictus Games. These men and women here have achieved so much already but being selected for this team is another significant milestone in their life beyond injury."
...

L/Cpl Derek Derenalagi, of 2nd Bn, The Mercian Regiment, who competed in the discus event at the London 2012 Paralympics, will throw the discus and shot as well as running in the 100m and 200m on blades. He said: “The Invictus Games is engaging servicemen and women to achieve things that weren’t possible for them to achieve before. Most of my colleagues won’t make it to the Paralympics but the Invictus Games will give them a chance to compete and for the public to thank them for their contribution...To be part of the first Invictus Games is a real honour.”

The 39-year-old married father-of-two, from Hertfordshire, was pronounced dead after losing both legs to an improvised explosive device (IED) in Helmand Province in 2007, but medical staff at Camp Bastion realised he still had a pulse as he was being prepared for a body bag.

This is great news. Denmark is one of the 14 countries participating.
This is not the first time Frederik has been involved with wounded soldiers and their rehabilitation through sports
