Discussion entitled: “The reverse side of Invictus Games medals”

Topics of focus:
– What is the Invictus medals price?
– Medals or rehabilitation? Why does the number of Invictus medals not reflect the effectiveness of the project (veteran sport)?
– Is it appropriate to measure the effectiveness of rehabilitation by medals?

Why is it interesting?
The Invictus Games is one of the largest adaptive sports events for veterans and servicemen and servicewomen who were injured or contracted the disease in the line of duty.

This year, the Ukrainian team took part in the Invictus Games for the fourth siring its existence. 25 participants, including military personnel and veterans of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the National Guard, the National Police, and volunteer battalions represented the country. Ukraine won 34 medals: 12 gold, 14 silver, and 8 bronze at the competition in Dusseldorf.
