Charlie Bonner: Wheelchair Basketball Athlete living with AMC

My Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC) Story

My name is Charlie and I am 19 years old. I was born with a rare condition called Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC), a condition which affects my joints, muscles and mobility. When I was born, I underwent several corrective operations, which I do not remember because I was still a baby, but it was feared that I may not be able to walk.

Paralympic Goals

By the age of six, I was invited to a disabled athletics club, where I discovered a love for throwing events. After a year of training, I was invited to give wheelchair basketball a go by my first coach. Ever since I started playing wheelchair basketball at the age of seven, I have found a passion for the game. I have since competed at regional and national competitions, winning an array of medals.

My next steps are to progress onto the GB junior training camps through invitation and then my ultimate goal is to represent my country at a Paralympic Games.

Collapsible text is perfect for longer content like paragraphs and descriptions. It’s a great way to give people more information while keeping your layout clean. Link your text to anything, including an external website or a different page. You can set your text box to expand and collapse when people click, so they can read more or less info.
