Emma Wiggs tasted defeat in her Paralympic bow this morning.

The sitting volleyball ace started for Great Britain as they suffered a 3-0 defeat to the Ukraine in the ExCel Arena.

Wiggs, a member of Portsmouth Sharks and PE teacher at The Regis School in Bognor, was named in the line-up but could not prevent Team GB going down to a strong Ukranian side.

The 32-year-old will be back in action tomorrow when Britain take on The Netherlands (4pm).
