Since starting wheelchair basketball almost eight years ago after a chance encounter with the family of team-mate and fellow Mancunian Laurie Williams, 21-year-old Jordanna Bartlett has enjoyed a great success in her chosen sport.
A key member of the GB U25 team, Jordanna helped the GB women to bronze at the 2011 U25 World Championships in Ottawa, Canada. Four years later, she played a crucial role in helping Great Britain to take the 2015 U25 World Championship title in Beijing, China, while there were U25 European silver medals in 2012 and 2013.
On home turf, Jordanna gained further valuable experience in front of a huge crowd at the Copper Box, during the GB Women’s National Paralympic Day game against the Netherlands.
In 2015 Jordanna made her major debut for Great Britain at the European Championships, winning bronze and assisting the team in securing a qualification place for the Rio 2016 Paralympics, where she will make her Games debut.
