ParalympicsGB wheelchair rugby player, Steve Brown spoke to Izzy and Megan from Hounsdown School about his sport and the role it had played in his life since a serious neck injury in 2005.

Brown went from being a spectator of the team to being asked to be its captain in the space of a few years.

He explains to the School Reporters how he was inspired by the physical fitness and self-confidence of wheelchair rugby players to take up the sport himself and how he feels ahead of a home Paralympic Games.
