Wheelchair basketball player considering amputating his leg – Daily Mail

A Team GB wheelchair basketball player is considering having one of his legs amputated so he is eligible to compete in the 2021 Paralympic Games in Tokyo.

Top player George Bates has Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) meaning for 15 years he has not been able to walk without assistance.

The poorly-understood condition has left him in agony with restricted movement and power and muscle wastage.

In 2018, Bates was on the first British men’s wheelchair basketball team to win the World Championships and scored 17 points in just 17 minutes in the final against the US.
