Track and Field

A gold medal is a wonderful thing. But if you’re not enough without it, you’ll never be enough with it.

Arnu Fourie

Arnu Fourie was just 18 years old when his dreams of playing rugby with South Africa’s famous Golden Lions were shattered in a devastating accident. It took some years to rebuild his life and sporting ambitions, but by 2008 his faith and determination took him all the way to the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games. Today Arnu continues to train hard, improving all the time and living life to the full.
