Jeremy Tyndall’s Australian under-23 Spinners have succeeded in booking a place to the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation World Championships in June.
The Spinners won their ticket to the Toronto championships after taking out the bronze medal at the qualifying tournament against host nation Thailand.
Tyndall helped his side to the semi-finals with a consistent presence in the post, highlighted by a double double in game one (10 points and 10 rebounds) and a standout performance in game four (four points, 10 rebounds, three assists and 37 minutes).
The semi did not fall Australia’s way, falling five points short against eventual gold medallist Iran, but the Spinners bounced back well to easily account for Thailand 73-49.
The bronze medal is yet another addition to the trophy room for Waaia’s Tyndall in what has been a promising start to his international career.
Tyndall also collected bronze at the Kitakyushu Champions Cup in November with the national side to go with his two bronze medals (2014 and 2015) at the Kevin Coombs Cup for Victoria.
The success does not stop there, though.
In the National Wheelchair Basketball League, Tyndall plies his trade for reigning back-to-back champions Kilsyth Cobras, who will attempt the three-peat this season.
Before the World Championships in June, Tyndall will have the opportunity to chase more Kevin Coombs Cup glory with Victoria, after his selection was recently announced for the April tournament in Townsville.
