Injured Ukrainian veterans to take part in Invictus Games

Injured Ukrainian veterans to take part in Invictus Games
 
Powerlifting qualifier in Kiev for the 2017 Toronto Invictus Games Filip Warwick

It is estimated that some 300,000 Ukrainian soldiers have served on the eastern frontline over the past four years. Some of those returning wounded have turned to sport as a form of rehabilitation. 

In September this year Ukrainian injured veterans will take part in the Invictus Games - an international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women.

Veterans will take part in disciplines such as athletics, indoor rowing, powerlifting, swimming and wheelchair basketball among others.

Ukraine will compete for the first time when the tournament is held in Toronto at the end of the year.

Filip Warwick attended the final qualifiers in Kiev and has this report.
