The 2015 Warrior Games will be held June 19–28 at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia. From 2010–2014, the Olympic Committee hosted the Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This year, DoD has taken over organizing the event.
The Warrior Games use adaptive sports and athletic reconditioning to help service members recover, rehabilitate, and reintegrate following injury. This year’s games will feature almost 200 wounded, ill, and injured service members from the Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and the British Armed Forces competing in eight different sporting events. Get more information and details about this year’s exciting and extremely competitive event!
It’s almost time for the Warrior Games in Colorado Springs! Athletes and teams from each branch of service have already qualified in their respective trials and are set to compete from 28 September through 6 October at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado. The Warrior Games give wounded service members and veterans an opportunity to compete in adaptive sports. For some, this is a continuation of their competitive careers; for others, it’s a new experience and part of the healing process. If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by to cheer on the athletes—admission is free! Semper Citius, Altius, Fortius!
