Simon Munn

With over two decades on the world stage to his name, Simon Munn will make his seventh appearance for ParalympicsGB at the Rio 2016 Games.

After losing his leg in a train accident at 21-years-old, the talented footballer was introduced to wheelchair basketball by his physio in the early 1990s and fell in love with the sport after watching his first game.

Since his debut for Great Britain at the 1991 European Championships, Simon has represented the nation at every major championship: earning three Paralympic medals (one silver, two bronze), two silvers at World Championships, and 11 European medals (four gold, four silver, three bronze).

In addition to his team success, Simon has also received the honour of captaining the GB men’s team – leading the team to the 2011 European title.

Simon’s wheelchair basketball career has not only seen the 4.0 player travel the world for Great Britain, he has played oversees in Italy for clubs Elecon Roma, GSD Porto Torres, and DECO Group Amicacci Giulianova.
