COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - 3D Pop artist Charles Fazzino, a licensee of the United States Olympic Committee (USOC), has been commissioned to create the official artwork for the 2013 Warrior Games presented by Deloitte, being held in Colorado Springs, Colo., May 11-16.

Approximately 260 wounded, ill, and injured service members and veterans will compete in seven sports over the six-day competition. Five U.S. teams will compete with athletes representing each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, as well as a sixth team from the United Kingdom - the British Armed Forces. The competition will also play host to an official visit by England's Prince Harry who is a great supporter of service members and veterans around the world.

"I am proud to be involved with an event as patriotic as the Warrior Games," Fazzino said. "These incredible men and women have sacrificed so much for us and they deserve not only to be recognized for what they have done, but to be celebrated for all they have yet to achieve. They are truly inspiring and I hope that my artwork can give a visual voice to all they are accomplishing in the sports arena and beyond."

Fazzino's artwork will grace the cover of the event program and be available for purchase as the official event poster and limited edition fine artwork.

"We are excited to have Museum Edition's Charles Fazzino lend his artistic talents in support of the 2013 Warrior Games," said USOC Chief of Paralympics Charlie Huebner. "His artwork truly celebrates the spirit of sport and the impact it can have on service members and veterans who have sacrificed so much for our freedom."

Prints will be available for sale on-site at the competition and online at www.TeamUSAshop.com.
