U.S. Marine Corps announces DoD Warrior Games 2020

22 Jul 2019 | Wounded Warrior Regiment

The United States Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment will host the DoD Warrior Games in San Antonio, Texas, Sept. 21-28, 2020.

The Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment announced the event at a press conference on July 10, 2019, alongside city officials, who will partner with the service to host the event in venues throughout the city and greater area.

“We look forward to working closely with both the military and civilian communities in what will be an exciting event for our City, the region, our military, and especially for our nation’s wounded, ill and injured warriors participating in the Games,” said Ron Nirenberg, Mayor of San Antonio.

More than 300 athletes will compete in the DoD Warrior Games in 2020. The athletes are comprised of active duty and veteran U.S service members from the Navy, Marine Corps, Army, Special Operations Command, and the Air Force. Teams of international service members will compete as well.

Teams and individuals will compete in 13 adaptive events, including archery, wheelchair basketball, road cycling, time-trial cycling, field, golf, powerlifting, indoor rowing, wheelchair rugby, shooting, sitting volleyball, swimming, track, golf, and wheelchair rugby.

The 2020 Games will be open to the public, and competition schedules and venues will be announced in the future. This is only the second  time in Warrior Games history in which the events will be held exclusively at public venues, as opposed to within a military establishment.

“We have witnessed over the years that the Warrior Games not only aides the recovery process for wounded warriors, but facilitates a sense of camaraderie and brings them closer to the community members who are committed to supporting them” said Col. Larry Miller, Commanding officer of the Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment. “San Antonio embodies its title – “Military City, USA” – and we have felt that in their enthusiastic reception to hosting our nation’s heroes for the ten-year anniversary of the Warrior Games.

Created in 2010, the DoD Warrior Games introduce wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans to Paralympic-style sports. Warrior Games showcases the resilient spirit of today’s wounded, ill or injured service members from all branches of the military. These athletes have overcome significant physical and behavioral injuries and prove that life can continue after becoming wounded, ill or injured.
