Gavin is up for King Power Quad Nations showdown

Paralympic athlete Gavin Walker has been selected as Team GB Vice Captain in the inaugural King Power Quad Nations Tournament.

A former firefighter and father of two, Gavin was introduced to wheelchair rugby during his rehab in the Sheffield Spinal Unit following an accident when he broke his neck, slipping on some wet decking in 2010.

Gavin made his Paralympic debut at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Gameslooks set to play at the King Power Quad Nations held in Leicester from 9-11 March.

The inaugural King Power Quad Nations brings together Paralympic Gold, Silver and Bronze winning medallists from Australia, Japan, the USA and Great Britain.

Gavin said: “It’s been a long time since Rio and the disappointment of not making the final four still hurts. It cost us dearly but this year is our chance to prove just how good we are.” Tickets start at just £5 with special offers available for groups and families.
