On Thursday the 9th of November 2017, friends and family came together to say goodbye to one of the most influential human beings I have ever had the pleasure to meet...My Man! Mr Kevin Cadle. There were many tributes to Kevin or Michael as he was known to his family who had made the trip over from the States. Perhaps the most moving tribute came from one of his dearest friends in the UK, Renaldo Lawrence. Renaldo finished his tribute with a letter he wrote to Kevin soon after Kevin's death was announced. The applause at the end told us all what Kevin meant to him and to all who knew him.

In the wheelchair basketball, Simon Munn top-scored with 16 for Great Britain in a game that could have gone either way. The joint-team leader, who will this summer compete in his sixth Paralympic Games, led ably from the front, but ultimately USA, inspired by top-scorer Jason Nelms with 17 points, were simply too good.
