Israel’s participation in the recent Invictus Games in Dusseldorf, Germany, marked a remarkable debut for the nation, as its delegation proudly stood alongside 21 other nations, competing in this biennial event that celebrates the indomitable spirit of injured and disabled veterans. The Israeli team’s performance was nothing short of spectacular, as its athletes clinched an impressive total of 14 medals.

This extraordinary Israeli team was exclusively composed of members from Beit Halochem, an organization dedicated to supporting veterans with disabilities. Nineteen tenacious athletes, ranging in age from 24 to 68, competed across ten adaptive sports, including swimming, cycling, archery, table tennis, hand-cycling, and indoor rowing. Each athlete received unwavering support from their dedicated coaches and training staff at state-of-the-art Beit Halochem Centers located throughout Israel.

Shali Shalom Zanzuri, an injured veteran who transformed into a competitive swimmer, enthusiastically shared his experience: “Invictus has been absolutely amazing. I have made friends for life, and people from all over the world have been cheering us on.”
