OUR Paralympians returned home from Rio this week to a much deserved heroes’ welcome. They brought us 17 medals in total, including seven gold and even breaking some records in the process. Teenage silver medalist Ntando Mahlangu was received like a rock star. The 14year-old double amputee only learnt to run four years ago!
We are extremely proud of all the brave and strong members of the team. Medal holders or not, you are all winners in our eyes.
