The Spanish Sports Federation for Persons with Physical Disabilities (FEDDF) has launched an emotional and attractive promotional video profiling the Spanish women’s wheelchair basketball team.

Between 28 August and 6 September, the team will compete at the European Championship in Worcester, Great Britain, an event the team hopes will result in their historic qualification for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

The video, titled "You Can" was produced by the FEDDF as part of measures to promote women's sports and aims to encourage women with disabilities to practice sport, through spectacular images and motivational messages.
