Colorado is welcoming the Warrior Games back to the US Air Force Academy in Colorado Spring this summer June 1 – 9.  More than 250 athletes – active duty service members and veterans – will participate in 11 events representing the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and Special Operations Command, United Kingdom Armed Forces, Australian Defence Force and Canadian Armed Forces. Competition includes archery, road cycling, track and field, shooting, sitting volleyball, swimming, wheelchair basketball and, for the first time in Warrior Games history, indoor rowing, powerlifting and time-trial cycling. What makes this event so incredible is not only are these incredible athletes in service to their countries, but they compete with limitations to their abilities due to injury and illness.  Their mental toughness, outstanding agility anddetermination produces amazing competition that inspires each other, their families and those who are privileged to be part of their journey.
