Recovery can be a lifelong journey for many, but that doesn't mean you can't achieve success along the way.
Despite the soggy start to the Invictus Games
opening ceremony last Saturday, nothing was going to stand in the way of the unconquered.
Prince Harry officially opened the games paying tribute to the competitors.
“When all of you compete over the next week, remember that you do so, not just for yourselves, not just for your families, not just for your nations,” said The Duke of Sussex.
“You are competing with different flags on your chests, but you are competing together for one Invictus Generation.
“You are the Unconquered Generation. You are the Optimistic Generation. You are the new generation of service, and you are the role models to us all.”
Come Monday it was down to business for the Indoor Rowing teams with Team Australia finishing the day with some impressive results. Ben Farinazzo and Emily Mysko both secured an impressive two gold medals contributing to a total of 8 gold, 6 silver and 3 bronze.
The Australian women of Emma Kadziolka, Tiff White and Sarah Petchell also completed an impressive 1, 2 and 3 finish in the IR6 Four Minute Endurance before Emma and Tiff swapped spots in the IR6 1 Minute Sprint to complete another 1, 2 and 3 finish for Australia, closing out an impressive day of indoor rowing.
