Warrior Games begin tomorrow

The 2010 Warrior Games, which feature 200 wounded, injured and ill personnel from all military branches, begins tomorrow in Colorado Springs.

The games feature seven sports at venues including the U.S. Olympic Training Center, the United States Air Force Academy and Memorial Park.

U.S. Paralympics, a division of the United States Olympic Committee, the Department of Defense, the USO and Ride To Recovery have partnered to bring one of the nation’s most unique and inspiring sports events to Colorado Springs.

Many of the events are free and open to the public in a city and community with a legacy of support and involvement with our nation’s Armed Services, as well as the home of the United States Olympic Committee and more than two dozen of the USOC’s important National Governing Bodies.
