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.
