My Life As… An Invictus Athlete

Invictus Games

They will come from nations all over the world, from New Zealand to Afghanistan to Canada, to Australia.

The Invictus Games are the brainchild of Prince Harry, himself a military veteran who served in Afghanistan.

In these games, wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and their associated veterans take part in an international Paralympic-style multi-sport event.

Over 550 men and women who sacrificed so much for their countries are now ready to represent their nation’s flag on the sporting arena.

The third edition of the Invictus Games is just around the corner in Toronto, Canada.

Jason Jinks

One man who’ll be giving it his all for Australia is archery athlete Jason Jinks. He has a decorated history serving our country and has sacrificed so much.

In this special episode of My Life As… Jason shares his incredible story and the ups and downs that come with serving your country.

To call Jason’s life a ‘journey’ would be a huge understatement. He went from working on a small dairy farm as a youngster to eventually serve in Iraq, an unbelievable change.

We join Jason Jinks (and his mate Paris) as he fine tunes his skills ahead of his first ever Invictus Games.
