There’d be no bigger joy for me than doing well at the Paralympic Games, and being able to celebrate our victories amongst all of us, when it ends!

Strong points

What’s important is how the team is calling out to each other, how they know where the others are, when they can’t see anything. Try to watch for the positions of the players when they don’t have the ball, too.
