GB Sledge Hockey team begin Paralympic qualifying campaign

Help for Heroes Band of Brother member, Tyler Christopher, who was selected for the GB Squad earlier this year when he got into the sport after losing both of his legs in Afghanistan 2009, was named man of the match in GB Sledge Hockey's first game. 

The GB Sledge Hockey Team started their campaign in Turin (Italy), this week to qualify for the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Games.  Their first match was against the No 1 seeded (home) team, Italy, which they lost 8-0.  

Despite the loss the GB team attacked and defended well and we wish them well in their goal to finish in the top 3.
