Army veteran Anthony Robinson, from Baton Rouge, La., took off as Britain's Prince Harry cheered all racers during the cycling event of the Warrior Games on May 12, 2013.

Robinson went on to win the silver medal in the Men's Hand Bicycle category.

The daylong cycling event consisted of seven categories in which wounded, ill or injured soldiers, Marines, airmen, sailors and soldiers of the British armed forces competed for the gold.

Throughout the week of the games, more than 260 wounded, ill or injured service members from across the Department of Defense and British armed forces will compete in track and field, sitting volleyball, shooting, swimming, archery and wheelchair basketball events.

The 2013 Warrior Games is intended to help service members advance their recovery by helping them overcome challenges associated with their physical injuries or illnesses.
