    LONDON - On the last day of the inaugural Invictus Games, several current, retired and former Soldiers captured medals during the swimming events here Sept. 14.

    Master Sgt. Rhoden Galloway captured a silver medal in the men’s 50 meter breaststroke ISC with a time of 39.01 and a bronze in the men’s 100 meter freestyle ISC with a time of 1:03.26.

    First Lt. Kelly Elmlinger won a silver in the women’s 50 meter backstroke ISC with a time of 50.89.

    Lt. Col. Patty Collins also secured a silver in the women’s 100 meter freestyle ISC with a time of 1:33.47, beating Elmlinger by about half a second.

    “It was fun. I think we are similar in abilities in most of our events, so we kind of pushed each other on, which was nice,” Collins said.

    Elmlinger said, “You always want to compete but at the end of the day, it’s the friendship that’s really going to last. The competitions are eventually going to go away, but you always hope the friendships are what sticks around for many years.”

    Sgt. Kawaiola Nahale captured bronze medals in the women’s 50 meter freestyle ISD and women’s 50 meter backstroke ISD, with times of 36.44 and 44.72, respectively.
