The Fanie and Tebogo show?
- Updated: April 5, 2009
Fast times are on the cards when Western Cape-based Paralympic speedster Fanie van der Merwe and the Free State’s Tebogo Mokgalagadi strive to make it to the top of the medal podium at the Nedbank National Championships for the physically disabled which will begin in Port Elizabeth from April 6.
At the 2008 Beijing Paralympics Van der Merwe won gold in the 100 metres, while Bloemfontein-based Mokgalagadi claimed bronze over the same distance. Both athletes have achieved major success in the sports arena and have shown what can be done through passion and determination, despite their challenge from cerebral palsy.
With over 800 physically disabled and visually impaired athletes from 12 regional associations set to compete in athletics, swimming, archery, football goalball, boccia and powerlifting, several sports heroes will be out to shine while rising talent will be out to take the challenge to the stars.
