 Athletics for people with disabilities 


I2B at 2019 Nottwil Junior World Para Athletics Championships!

Three I2B athletes recently competed at the 2019 Nottwil Junior World Para Athletics Championships! Chane, Paul and Marle (partly coached by I2B coach, Fanie) made up I2B's team and also represented Team SA. I2B project manager also joined the team as their coach.


  

Chane competed in the T13 division (athlete with visual impairment) and Paul competed in the T62 division (double amputee). 

Paul had personal best times in both the 100m and 200m. We are extremely proud of him!

 

Chane received gold in the long jump as well as a silver medal in the 100m!

We could not be more proud of our athletes who gave it their all! South Africa placed 5th out of 31 countries with a total of 33 medals.



Thank you to everyone who supported us in helping our athletes attend this life changing event. Their lives were forever impacted and this is the beginning of even greater things to come!

I2B at 2019 Nottwil Junior World Para Athletics Championships!

Inspired2Become is proud to announce that two of our athletes, Paul Daniels and Chane Hendricks, were selected to present South Africa at the Junior World Para Athletics Championships! It will take place in Nottwil, Switzerland from 28 July until 5 August 2019.

  

Chane Hendricks will be competing in the T13 division (athlete with visual impairment) and Paul Daniels will be competing in the T62 division (double amputee).  I have been selected to join the event as a team coach.


 
Unfortunately the National Federation is unable to send the team due to a lack of funding and the responsibility is on the individual to raise the funds needed for World Champs. Please consider joining us in this cause.

                                   

 

We are extremely thankful for each and everyone who have supported us so far!

So thankful that my dad came to help the I2B Team put a new rail into the cement floor at Smoothies, home of the I2B Strand Skate Club.

This is what the end product looked like. Thanks to Josh and Remey for also working hard that day.



Accidents happen
Unfortunately Akim from I2B Strand broke his arm on the first day skating the new rail but thankfully he is recovering well.
