The old adage of ‘if you can’t see it, you can’t be it’ definitely applies to Amy Conroy.  

The 29-year-old from Norwich had attended a taster session for wheelchair basketball but it was only later when she saw the sport being played professionally that she committed to the sport. 

Conroy will return to the city of her international debut this summer, earning sixth place when the World Wheelchair Basketball Championships were held in Birmingham in 2010. 

Silverware has flowed since then, most recently with silvers at the European and World Championships, the latter marking the first time a women’s GB squad had reached the gold medal final at the Worlds.
