So, the Warrior Games has officially come to a close. And, let me say that it’s been an outstanding event. From special visitors, such as Prince Harry and three-time Paralympic medalist Brad Snyder, to the overall domination of now four-time champions the Marines, this year is certainly one to remember. But, every year can’t be forgotten. More than 260 ill, injured and wounded service men and women participate in the Warrior Games, and each one of them puts so much effort and determination into the competition that it’s impossible to not think that each one of them deserves a medal of some sort.
Here is a visual recap of this year’s events.
This year, the US Marines claimed the Champion’s Cup with 100 points, which were attributed from the 36 track-and-field medals, 34 in swimming, 13 medals in shooting and four medals in both archery and cycling, as well as a gold medal in sitting volleyball and a silver in wheelchair basketball. Trailing by 15 points was the US Army, followed by the Navy and then the Air Force.
