Abderrahim Taghrest won gold at the 3X3 Wheelchair Basketball School Games last year with Team England teammate Charlie McIntyre. 

That final against the undefeated London North was one of the highest scoring games in Loughborough with the 15-9 result marking the highlight of the 18-year-old's career to date. 

The Hertfordshire-born player will be one of the youngest athletes making up Team England’s squad for Birmingham 2022 as he makes his Commonwealth Games debut.
