Before presenting the winners medals, Prince Harry took to the last round of the challenge by joining Estonia on the Land Rover course and Denmark on the Jaguar course to show his support to the teams in the first competitive medal event of the Games.

 

Jaguar Land Rover CEO, Ralf Speth, said, “Today, the Invictus Games were opened by the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge. We were delighted to host 11 nations in their first medal opportunity. The competition was very tough. I was honoured to meet with the passionate competitors to hear more about their own individual journey to Invictus Games. There is a close alignment of the values and the mind-set of Jaguar Land Rover and the vision of the Games. So, we are extremely proud to be the presenting partner. We are all grateful to HRH Prince Harry for founding and championing this visionary idea of the Games. We congratulate him and the organising committee on establishing yet another inspiring Invictus Games.”
