Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau posted a humorous video of himself accompanied by Canadian Invictus Games athletes ahead of the 2016 sports competition for wounded, injured and sick service personnel, to be held in Orlando, US..

Trudeau jokingly makes a reference to a recent video featuring President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle making a defiant video call to Prince Harry over who has the best team.

“Boom, Orlando, Invictus Games, Canada’s ready.”
Justin Trudeau, Canadian Prime Minister

The videos are part of the promotional effort for the games.

Inspired by a visit to the Warrior Games in the United States, the 31-year-old Prince Harry founded the Invictus Games in 2013.

The Invictus Games were first held in London in 2014 and involved more than 400 competitors from 13 countries.

This year’s games are being held in Orlando, Florida.

The Toronto Invictus Games are set for September 26 to 30 and will see more than 600 ill and wounded servicemen and women from 16 allied nations compete in 12 adaptive sports.
