Mandip (aka Manni) was injured in a car crash at the age of 19. Like many of his team mates Manni was introduced to the sport of wheelchair rugby in a ‘have a go’ session at Stoke Mandeville hospital, run by former GB captain Bob O’Shea.
In 2002, Manni was scouted as a potential talent and went on a World Friendship Tour. His first taste of full international competition came when he was selected to represent GB at the 2005 European Championships in Denmark, where he won the first of his three European Gold medals (2005, 2007 and 2015).
He made his Paralympic debut at the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games, and was selected to be part of the team that secured a 5th place finish at London 2012.
On Manni's third Games appearance at Rio 2016, Great Britain finished in fifth place.
In the toughest of competitions, GB lost to eventual gold medallists Australia by just two points and were edged out in overtime by top seeds Canada, who lost to silver medallists the United States in their semi-final.
