The third-ever Invictus Games commenced over the weekend, and the athletic event has been taking place in Toronto for the first time.

Besides the Royal welcome, 550 competitors from 17 nations landed in Toronto for the week long event, which kicked off on September 23.

The 2017 Invictus Games features 12 adaptive sports, adapted so it can be played by individuals with disability, over the course of the event in venues across the city.
