It was a case of deja vu for Ealing wheelchair basketball star Gaz Choudhry and Great Britain at the World Championships this week.
Choudhry performed manfully in South Korea, finishing as Great Britain's third-highest scorer with a total of 99 points in eight games.
But despite his impressive performance as Great Britain won all six of their pool games, they heartbreakingly lost 71-69 to Turkey in their quarter-final, thereby replicating their seventh-placed finish of 2010.
A dejected Choudhry took to Twitter to lament the 'deja vu'.
He said: “Deja vu, go out again at quarter-final stage of the Worlds [Championships] after an unbeaten group stage. Lost for words.”
The 2012 Paralympic veteran grew into the tournament, top-scoring in their fifth pool game victory over Japan.
That match secured a quarter-final berth, but despite their narrow loss against eventual bronze medallists Turkey, Choudhry and the rest of the team managed to pick themselves up to beat a physical Iran side in the seventh-place play-off.
Choudhry can take heart from his own performance – including finishing as the tournament's eight most successful free-thrower – and from the words of his coach, Haj Bhania.
Bhania said: “I thought the guys played really well. We were all flat before the game against Iran with the after effects of the loss to Turkey, and I feared that they wouldn't be up for the game.
“But the boys came out and restored a bit of pride. We know we have work to do and we will improve and be a threat for the future. The hurt from here will drive us on.”
