Wheelchair basketball star Maddie Thompson is stepping up her training ahead of the World Championships later this year.

The 18-year-old jetted off to the United States earlier this week for a training camp with her fellow Team GB members.

The World Championships, being staged in Canada, run from June 20-28.

Maddie will be hoping to follow up last year’s success which included a bronze medal at the European Championships.
