Description : Afghanistan’s wheelchair basketball team have only been playing together for four years and became a national team just a year ago. Despite this fact, there seem to be no limits to the players’ ambitions and dedication to their sport as they travel to Italy to compete internationally for the first time.
Their journey to Italy to play internationally for the first time has not been easy. All the players are patients or former patients of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) physical rehabilitation centre in Afghanistan. Some suffered landmine injuries as children, others are survivors of polio. For all of them, the chance to take on Italy’s national wheelchair basketball champions, Briantea 84, is a dream come true, and a chance to show off their achievements.
