Medals are pouring in for South Africa in the Paralympic Games in London.
Thus far, Team SA has bagged 10 medals, much to the nation's delight.
"We are very happy that Team SA has bagged 2 gold medals, 4 silver and 4
bronze. We can't help but hope for more as we believe that our SA
Paralympics Team can do it," said IFP Spokesperson on Sports and Recreation,
Hon. Mkhuleko Hlengwa MP.
Oscar Pistorius, who recently made history at the 2012 London Olympics as
the first amputee on track, has made waves again by setting a world record
in the T43 division. His teammate, Arnu Fourie, has set the new world best
in the T44 division.
"We are very proud of our athletes for being the world's best. They have
raised the South African flag high in this year's Paralympic Games. As a
nation we need to take note of such achievements, acknowledge and encourage
our athletes, and always celebrate when they do us proud," said Hlengwa.
"They are not only doing this for themselves, but for the country. They
represent us all as South Africans on the world's stage. Thus we must always
celebrate and stay behind our Team SA," concluded Hlengwa.
The IFP would like to congratulate the SA Paralympics Team and encourage
them to do even more.
