Prince Harry on 2016 IMPACT25 honoree Elizabeth Marks
I am incredibly proud to know Sgt. Elizabeth Marks. This year she won four gold medals in swimming events at the Invictus Games in Orlando, Florida. She was then selected to compete for the U.S. team at the Rio Paralympic Games. Going into the Games she was ranked No. 1 in the world in the 100-meter breaststroke, and she went on to win gold in the SB7 100 meters.

This is an incredible achievement by any standards, and I know this is how she wants to be defined, by her achievements and her abilities. But as an Army sergeant wounded in service to her country, her journey to get to this point has been remarkable. To me she epitomizes the courage, resilience and determination of our servicemen and women. Using sport to fight back from injury in the most remarkable way, she sums up what the Invictus Games spirit is all about.

sorry bit given the stories re: Nick Logran persuading Harry to hype the romance angle with Sgt Marks to publicize the games - I find Harry's statement a bit hypocritical

her achievement however cannot be dimmed by the dimwitted

^ The only suggestions of a romance between Sgt Marks and Harry were made by people on the Internet in blogs and forums. Harry never ever hinted that they were romantically involved, nor did she. They were good friends only, and he has given a heartfelt tribute to her that IMHO should be acknowledged.

Interesting that last night Prince Harry and the Invictus Games were given a mention on the prestigious Sports Personality of the Year programme last night.  For those of you who don't live in the UK it's the night when all of the British sporting achievements are acknowledged.  I say it was interesting because Prince William was there (to give an award to Michael Phelps) and for a change William's name wasn't tagged on to one of Harry's projects.  I actually felt a little embarrassed for him.

Harry and Elizabeth Marks??  it is ridiculous!

Sorry, but I don't like these deficient people who use their problem to appear and get attention and also don't think they are heroines or excellent people because of this, Oscar Pistorios is also deficient and see what he did.

So many people are deficient in third world countries and even without support, press ... they overcome and follow life

Appalled...absolutely appalled...tnat you would compare Elizabeth Marks to Oscar Pistorius who murdered his girlfriend.

Disgusting.

And what, exactly, is a "deficient person"?

^^ I presume 'deficient' means a human being who is missing one or more limbs. You do realise, I suppose, that the wounded and maimed veterans who compete at the Invictus Games received their physical injuries (and sometimes mental scarring) as a result of serving their country in a combat zone? That includes Sgt Elizabeth Marks.

^ I'm not sure that's the point. Doesn't matter how Sgt Marks came by her disability - to lump her in the same pile as a convicted murderer because they are both disabled is obscene.

Oh boy. I sure hope the "deficient" part is mere semantics glitch.
