The International Wheelchair Basketball Federation is greatly saddened by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday (8 September).

A moment of silence was observed at the IWBF Men’s U23 World Championship ahead of the game between Commonwealth Nations Australia and South Africa in honour of the Head of the Commonwealth Nations and longest reigning monarch of the United Kingdom, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Our thoughts go out to the people of the United Kingdom, The Commonwealth and all those around the globe as we join them in mourning the loss of Her Majesty.
