Rio 2016 Paralympics – Team SA arrives

BY JESICA SLABBERT - SEPTEMBER 5, 2016

Team South Africa arrived in Rio for the 2016 Paralympics over the weekend and they could not be more pumped up.

The team thoroughly enjoyed the welcoming ceremony at the athlete’s village and were certainly glad to see old friends and rivals from the other countries again.

Track and field coach Suzanne Ferreira said that after the team managed to get over their travel fatigue they had an easy session on the Saturday and an even greater session on Sunday, which their bodies responded well with.

So far, Team SA is in full spirits and looking forwards to the games that will be taking place in just two days from now.
