ORLANDO, Fla (FOX11/ AP) - The Invictus Games wrapped up a four day series of inspirational athletic performances on Thursday in Orlando.
The Paralympic-style event for wounded and sick military members and veterans was created by Prince Harry as a way to inspire and motivate wounded soldiers on their path to recovery. The first Invictus Games were held in London last year and the 2017 Games will be held in Toronto.
In addition to the amazing athletes that competed, some of the athletes' service dogs took part in a swim race as well. The Invictus Games shared an adorable video of the dogs competing on their official Twitter account.
A last minute event - let's not forget the 13 service dogs here who always provide huge support to their owners.https://t.co/qIRB8J0vXL— Invictus Games (@WeAreInvictus) May 12, 2016
