Ixhelt Gonzalez is youngest player in U.S. Women’s National Wheelchair Basketball Team
Ixhelt Gonzalez is the youngest player who has been made a team member of the U.S. Women’s National Wheelchair Basketball Team. She is only 17 year old and is from Chicago, USA.
Gonzalez has femoral anteversion that causes an inward twisting of the thigh bone. The condition causes your child’s knees and feet to turn inward and have a “pigeon-toed” appearance.
Gonzalez does not have to use a wheel chair in her daily life and has been selected due to talent.
She has been playing the game for several years now and her coaches are proud of her selection.
She is also preparing for her selection to the August World Championships in Germany and also the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
