Prince Harry creates sport event for vets

– Britain’s Prince Harry is launching the “Invictus Games,” a new sporting event for wounded, injured and sick service personnel.

Inspired by a visit to the Warrior Games in the United States, Harry described the Paralympic-style competition as “such a good idea by the Americans that it had to be stolen.”

He told reporters Thursday he had seen “how the power of sport can positively impact the lives of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women.”

The games will be funded in part from a government fund holding proceeds of fines levied on banks for manipulating currency rates.
