Video transcript start:

Hi everyone. Our research with the Canadian wheelchair basketball team demonstrated that athletes with a congenital disability were able to reassure early milestones at a significantly younger age. However, when examining a late career milestone such as national and international debuts, there were no significant differences between groups.

Also, athlete disability severity did not influence athlete’s progression through development or the hours they devoted to training.
