The Invictus Games will conclude on Saturday with a closing event, which will be attended by German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier. Over 500 participants from 21 countries are competing in one or more of the ten disciplines. Additionally, more than 1000 family members and caregivers have traveled to the week-long sports festival. This is the first time the event is taking place in Germany.
