As Boris Starling‘s Unconquerable: The Invictus Spirit is published, the third Invictus Games will be held in Toronto. The games may only be still in their infancy, but the impact of their meaning, the opportunity of their purpose, and their growing legacy transcends age. The games are a chance for servicemen and women to compete in a prestigious multisport competition, but to each competitor the games’ existence also symbolises a different sort of challenge. To qualify, you must have already been through hell and back, and it’s reaching your mark that signifies your first victory. The servicemen and women who compete for glory at the Invictus Games are those who have been injured, wounded, and halted in their service in ways unfathomable, and are now proving to the world that not only is recovery an option – so is excellence.
At the Invictus Games the starting line marks more than just the racetrack. It marks a whole new beginning. The unconquerable spirit and unbreakable will of competitors uplifts everyone lucky enough to watch, and Unconquerable: The Invictus Spirit tells the stories of some of these heroes. Be it racing with triple amputations, or firing arrows with one’s teeth – the awesome stories of the people we see in the arena and how they came to be there will humble you.
The games are spearheaded by Prince Harry, and, only fittingly, Unconquerable: The Invictus Spirit bears a foreword by him. Proving that ‘change’ never has to mean ‘end’, Boris perfectly celebrates the servicemen and women who define ‘unconquerable’.
