- Updated: August 21, 2010
Golden girl Natalie Du Toit ended the IPC World Swimming Championships in style for South Africa in Eindhoven, Netherlands on Saturday.
She swam to her sixth gold medal of the championships when she won the open water 5-kilometre swim (S9 category).
The amputee clocked 1hr 00min 20sec for victory. She will now return to South Africa with six golds, a silver and a bronze medal to add to her already substantial trophy cabinet.
Team South Africa won 11 medals in total at the championships, Kevin Paul’s silver and Charl Bouwer’s two silvers making up the tally.
The only other South African in action on Saturday was Tiaan du Plessis in the men’s 5km open water long haul (S8). He ended 15th in 1:15.00.
