Production Description

In October 2018 it was Game On, Down Under for Invictus Games Sydney. The Sydney Games saw 491 competitors from 18 nations compete in 11 different medal sports. The eight-day multisport event was created for wounded, injured or ill veterans and active service men and women along with their recognised family and friends who play such an important role in helping with the challenges they share in supporting our wounded warriors.

The games were broadcast domestically by JAMTV, in conjunction with the ABC. 100 hours of exclusive content from the games was broadcast including original and curated Invictus Games-inspired content such as Invictus Games Today, as well as the opening and closing ceremonies, and live coverage of the events. JAMTV played an integral part in the broadcaster’s multiplatform coverage streaming live on ABC iview and nightly on the ABC’s main channel.
