Prince Harry joked Thursday that a Paralympic-style sporting championship for injured servicemen and women known as the Warrior Games was such a good idea by the Americans that it had to be stolen. “When I was in Washington in 2012, I met the small contingent of the U.K. team and hearing the stories that came back from the games really ignited something in me that made me want to broaden this to wider audiences,” he said. “Why do we need to do it? Well, to demonstrate the power of sports, to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and to demonstrate life beyond disability, and it really is as simple as that.”
