Australian Steelers - wheelchair rugby

One of the enduring memories of the 2016 Paralympic Games was the Steelers’ epic victory in the gold medal clash against arch rival the United States of America. The double overtime victory backed up their London 2012 Paralympic gold and confirmed their world No. 1 ranking.

The Rio win was that much sweeter because it came against the team the Steelers had never beaten in a major international competition. Spearheaded by the sport’s best player, Ryley Batt, the Steelers became the first team to successfully defend a Paralympic wheelchair rugby title.
