His Majesty King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands Cheer on Dutch Athletes During the 2022 Invictus Games.

On Friday, April 22, 2022, His Majesty King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands accompanied by the Royal Netherlands Army Three-Star General, Mart de Kruif, and a representative from the Invictus Games, attended the Wheelchair Basketball Gold Medal match at the Zuiderpark in Den Haag (The Hague). His Majesty along with General de Kruif, Her Royal Highness Princess Margriet of the Netherlands and Prince Pieter-Christiaan of Oranjg-Nassau cheered and clapped as Team Netherlands competed against Team USA. I have no idea who won, by the way.

Heavily inspired by the Warrior Games — which was developed in 2010 by the United States Department of Defense to celebrate the resiliency and dedication of wounded, ill, and injured active duty and veteran U.S. military service members. Hundreds of elite athletes, including those from international allied nations, compete in adaptive sporting events such as wheelchair basketball, cycling, indoor rowing, and wheelchair rugby, among others. The Warrior Games serve as a way to enhance the recovery and rehabilitation of wounded warriors by providing them exposure to adaptive sports — the Invictus Games is, well, the exact same thing.

Originally, the Invictus Games were to take place in Den Haag two years ago, but thanks to the pandemic the games were postponed several times.

Tonight, His Majesty King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands is expected to attend the closing ceremony of the 2022 Invictus Games. Congrats to all the athletes who participated in the games.
