Paralympic medallist Sharon Walraven says, ‘As a top athlete, I am constantly looking for the best resources to improve my performance. Together with Mg Wheels, I developed these unique lightweight magnesium wheels which assist me on and off the field!
I am always going somewhere in my wheelchair, whether it is to training, tournaments, or visiting friends and family. Every time I lift these lightweight wheels into the car, I feel a sense of relief – The wheels are so light that it doesn't take any effort at all to lift them up.’
Sharon Walraven has been a wheelchair tennis player since 1994. She travels across the world for six months of the year. While this goes hand in hand with a pretty busy schedule that requires a lot of discipline, with a clear goal in sight she is able to motivate herself again each day.
‘I have been playing in my light magnesium wheelchair since 2013. As a wheelchair tennis player, I am able to accelerate quicker and am more manoeuvrable thanks to the addition of my new light Magnesium Wheels.'
