The 2013 Warrior Games competition came to a close on May 16, delivering excitement and great sportsmanship throughout the week.
The week kicked off Saturday with three-time Paralympic medalist Navy Lt. Brad Snyder, five-time Olympic medalist Missy Franklin and Prince Harry lighting the cauldron, and ended by celebrating the new Warrior Games champions.
Here’s a look at some of the great moments captured during the competition.
