Stretham’s Sarah vows to come out fighting for GB Paralympic classification match
STRETHAM Paralympian Sarah Grady has vowed to come out fighting today as she bids to help TeamGB secure fifth place in the wheelchair basketball event.
Despite a superb performance against Germany, one of the best teams in the tournament, in Tuesday’s quarter final, Grady and TeamGB were edged out 55-44 despite going into the last quarter just a point behind.
Grady enjoyed her best performance on the tournament against the German team, playing 14 minutes and scoring four points but she was understandably upset after the match.
Posting on social networking site Twitter, Sarah said: “It all feels so raw right now and it hurts, we will be back and fighting on Thurs, fifth will be ours. Thank you all for the support, it’s amazing.”
Team GB will be back in action against today (Thursday) as they take on China from 10.45am in a bid to take fifth spot.
