Georgian Soldiers Win Golden Medals at Invictus Games in Toronto

The Georgian team of wounded soldiers won Gold Medals in sitting volleyball at the Invictus Games 2017 held in Toronto, Canada, defeating the UK team in the final match. Georgians also participated in cycling, swimming, archery, powerlifting and racing competitions. 

It’s the third time the Georgian soldiers, who were wounded during their various military missions, have participated in the Invictus Games, previously held in London, and Orlando, USA, and are held under the patronage of Prince Harry, who awarded the Georgian team with the gold medals himself. 

Georgian Minister of Defence Levan Izoria congratulated the winners while in Vilnius, where he was attending the “Eastern Partners in European Security and Defence” conference.
