Canada’s Patrick Anderson is arguably the best wheelchair basketball player of all time. He has played a key role in the success of the Canadian team since his debut in 1997. Anderson, who lost both legs below the knee in a car accident when he was nine, came out of retirement in 2010 to compete in the Paralympic Games in London, inspiring the Canadian team to their third gold medal in four Paralympics.
In the final against Australia, Anderson, aged 33, played some of the best wheelchair basketball of his life, scoring 34 points, with ten rebounds and eight assists in the 64-58 victory.
