At just 10-years-old, Gaz Choudhry had his right leg amputated due to osteosarcoma, bone cancer; two years later, the keen sportsperson’s life changed after being introduced to wheelchair basketball by Gordon Perry at a British Wheelchair Basketball roadshow.

Gaz has been an integral part of the GB Men’s Squad since his debut for the team at the 2009 BT Paralympic World Cup, winning four European titles, a World title and a Paralympic bronze medal. It was in his home city of London where Gaz made his debut for ParalympicsGB at London 2012.

European titles would follow in 2013 and 2015, including qualification for the Rio 2016 Paralympics, where he was part of the men’s team which brought home the bronze medal.

After claiming European silver in 2017, Gaz and the GB Men’s team made history in 2018 as the first GB team to secure the World Championships title. 12 months later and another international title was added to Gaz’s medal haul, a fourth European gold medal.
