The Invictus Games bring together wounded, injured and ill servicemen and women from around the world. Among them will be Corporal Sonya Newman, from the tiny town of Marrakai outside of Darwin, representing Australia at her second Invictus Games after a four medal haul in Toronto last year.
Sonya tells Kendi Burness-Cowan about her lifelong love of sport, her competitive spirit and why neither of those are the most important things about the Invictus Games.
