A historic World Championships campaign this August in Hamburg the team captivated a nation as they broke new ground for British women’s wheelchair basketball. They are the first GB women’s team ever to secure a place in a major final, and the first in history to bring home the silver medal from a World Championships.
This success marks the current GB women’s squad as the most successful team in our sports history – the squad who finished fourth in Rio and secured the bronze medal at the Europeans have tipped off their Tokyo campaign with a World Championships silver.
Part of the success was Sheffield Hallam Students, Sophie Garigill, Charlotte Moor and Judith Hamer. It gets even better for the Womens Wheelchair Basketball Trio as the the GB womens team announced on the shortlist for Team of the Year for Sunday Times Sportswomen of the Year Award (SWOTY).
