What do the Paralympics mean to you?
Proudly South African
We, at South African Hotels are so super proud of the South African Paralymic team! Oscar Pistorius, our very own legless runner, held the flag high for South Africa. The blade runner won three gold medals for South Africa at the Beijing Paralympics. With a team of 62 people we stand firmly behind our athletes and urge them on to do themselves and their country proud. The Paralymic team brought back an amazing 30 medals last year, 21 of which were gold. Natalie du Toit was the first of the team to clinch gold this year in the 100m butterfly event. This will be Natalie’s last Olympics and we are so proud of her achievements thus far, we can’t wait to see what the rest of the games will bring!
