All three athletes, Millie, Menna and James will be representing Great Britain in the Winter Paralympics team.

ParalympicsGB finalised their numbers for the Games that begin on 4 March by adding Alpine, Nordic skiing and snowboard athletes to five wheelchair curlers already selected. It brings the total number of athletes to 25, the biggest group since Lillehammer in 1994.
