Great Britain squad named for wheelchair basketball European Championships

Great Britain coach Haj Bhania names his 12-man squad for the wheelchair basketball European Championships in Worcester.

Great Britain coach Hal Bhania has admitted that he had a number of "challenging" decisions to make when selecting his squad for the wheelchair basketball European Championships.

A 12-man squad has been named for the competition which begins in Worcester next month, and Bhania has revealed that it wasn't easy to reduce the group to a dozen players.

Bhania is quoted by BBC Sport as saying: "The depth of talent meant that selection was once again a very challenging decision.

"Every athlete has worked incredibly hard throughout the season and during our recent intensive programme."

The defending champions are hoping that they can book their place at the 2016 Paralympics with a third successive title.
