Day 1: Saturday April 16

The biggest highlight of the first day of the Invictus Games was, of course, the opening ceremony. A lightning-fast show, in which moving stories were interspersed with lots of music, caused enthusiasm and emotions among the 5000 attendees. The first sporting event of the Invictus Games was held in the morning: the Land Rover Driving Challenge. France won the event, but the British participants felt just as good about it: ‘We had to wait a long time for it, but the Invictus Games have started!’ Meanwhile, hundreds of volunteers also manned the various activities at the busy Zuiderpark.
