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!
