At just 17 years old Charle McIntyre was one of the youngest members of Team England’s squad for Birmingham, also coming away with a medal.

McIntyre was part of the men's wheelchair basketball squad that secured bronze as the sport made its debut at the Commonwealth Games.

The Essex starlet has always been involved in sport, having trained with Chelsea Football Club’s junior academy before being diagnosed with an illness which affects his hips at the age of six. 

His list of achievements at junior level include U15 player of the season and U15 national bronze medallist before stepping up to the senior level for the 2017/2018 season. 

Where he continued his quick rise by winning the international Easter Cup in Berlin and securing the Most Valuable Player award for National league side High Rollers.

McIntyre has since gone on to represent England South at the 3X3 Wheelchair Basketball School Games in Loughborough before signing for Italian basketball team Dinamo Sassuri.

After a stellar year on court, including a EuroCup performance and All Star nomination, McIntyre was nominated for the 2023 BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year award.
