The 17-year old Maltese boy with an inspirational story, is pulling off a bunch of awesome wheelchair basketball tricks and he is proving to be a star in the making.
Matthew Enriquez was born with a condition named spina bifida and since then, he had done around 28 operations including some major ones too.
However, this is not stopping him from taking on, any challenge he is faced with.
Despite Enriquez started making his initial steps at just the age of 6, when he was 12 he fell and broke his knees and this accident put him back on the wheelchair.
Infact, he says, that if this didn’t happen to him, he wouldn’t be playing wheelchair basketball.
On his TikTok page, Enriquez, has been asking people to send him basketball challenges to do and his videos show how serious he is about his sport.

His mother, Louisa stated, that her sons’ determination has kept her spirits high and as a family, they are able to face any challenge – together. Namely, Louisa herself, who has beaten cancer three times in the last year alone.
Louisa, further stated that Matt’s motto in life is ‘Never give up and always try. Even if you do not succeed, at least you gave it your best shot’.
