Introduced to wheelchair basketball at the end of 2014 in a taster session at her college, Bethany Wheeler joined the GLL & Aspire London Titans in the summer of 2015. She has flourished under the guidance of Paralympian Ann Wild OBE.
The 2019 U25 World Championships marked Bethany’s first international appearance for the Southend local. However, she is no stranger to international competition having competed in EuroLeague 3 finals with her home team London Titans during the 2018/19 season.
Bethany cites her father as her biggest sporting influence and her U25 World Championship GB squad selection as the proudest moment of her sporting career to-date.
With ambitions to one day represent her nation at a Paralympics, the Occupational Therapy student hopes that she too can help inspire children to find their own passions in life.
