James is a wheelchair basketball star who helped Great Britain win the World Championship, shocking USA in the final.

The east Belfast man made his international debut in the tournament and played in five of GB’s seven games in Hamburg.

Also nominated were Bethany Firth, Gareth McNeilly and Catherine Parke.

“I’m delighted to win this award,” said James via a pre-recorded video. “Unfortunately I can’t be there because I’m in Milan competing in a friendly tournament. I’m due to be on court as this award is to be announced. I really hope this award inspires me on to selection for Tokyo in 2020.”
