Supporting Disabled and Paralympic Athletes
It is hard to believe that we first met Charlotte at the London Paralympics almost 8 years ago. Since then, Charlotte has gone from strength to strength and is now a regular in the GB Women’s Basketball Team. Indeed, she was part of the Team that did so well at the Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro 4 years ago and actually celebrated her 18th birthday during the tournament.
As well as being a regular for the GB Team, she is a key member of the Coventry Wheelchair Basketball Academy.
Charlotte recently returned from Toyko having taken part in the pre-Paralympic Osaka Cup tournament where the GB Team finished runners-up to Canada. However, Charlotte and her teammate, Laurie Williams, were named in the ‘Best 5’ in the Osaka Cup, underlining how important Charlotte is to the Team.
All being well – and given the current Coronavirus issue it is hard to be certain of anything – Charlotte should be a key player in the Paralympics in Tokyo in the summer.
It goes without saying that we wish her and her teammates, all the best in the world.
