Team SA shines at the 2015 IPC Athletics World Champs

SASCOC extend their heartfelt congratulations to Team South Africa for their excellent performance at the 2015 IPC Athletics World Championships which ended in Doha, Qatar on Saturday.

South Africa excelled at the extremely intense and competitive IPC Athletics World Championships, held over 10 days, and attended by approximately 1,300 athletes from 90 countries, bringing back home a total of 17 medals (four gold, eight silver and five bronze). South Africa placed 13th position on the final medal table.

At the last IPC Athletics World Championships in Lyon, France, two years ago Team SA ended with an 18-medal haul, putting them 20th on the medals table with the Russian Federation topping the table with 52.


Says Acting CEO, Vinesh Maharaj: “We congratulate Team South Africa for their great performance at the recently completed IPC World Championships. It’s really encouraging to see our athletes displaying such great performance. Of course, this all bodes well for next year’s Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.


‘You have done the country proud and we wish you all the best as your preparations for Rio continue,” Maharaj concluded.


SASCOC also extended their gratitude to Sport and Recreation South Africa, National Lotteries Commission, Nedbank, Sasol, South African Airways and 361° who contributed to Team South Africa’s success.
