A further four medals came South Africa’s way at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London on Thursday.
And there was yet another gold for Natalie du Toit in her final Paralympics before she calls it quits on her swimming career. Du Toit won gold in the S9 200-metre Individual Medley while there were also two silver and one bronze medals during the evening.
All the other medals came on the track and South Africa have now moved up to a total of 21 medals. The other medals went to Hilton Langenhoven (silver, T12 400m), Ilse Hayes (silver, T13 100m) and Arnu Fourie (bronze, T43-44 100m.)
Said SASCOC Chief Executive Officer Mr Tubby Reddy: “Well done to Natalie on her third gold medal here in London. She is certainly doing her bit to help the team climb up the medals table.
“It’s also great to see our sprinters, Hilton and Ilse ending in the medals again and then Arnu made sure that South Africa were represented on the podium in the showpiece event of the Games.”
Team South Africa’s tally of 21 medals is made up of five golds, seven silvers and nine bronze.
The Games come to a conclusion on Sunday, 9 September.
