USA Wheelchair Rugby took home top honors at the King Power Quad Nations Wheelchair Rugby Tournament March 9-11th in Leicester, England.  After a loss to host Great Britain in their opening game, the American squad came back with three hard fought victories over Japan and reigning Paralympic champion Australia whom they faced in both open play and the final.

2018 is a busy year for USAWR with training camps and international competitions.  This all leads up to the GIO World Championships in August, the team’s first opportunity to automatically qualify for the 2020 Paralympic Games.
