Sasol Paralympics 2016

Sasol is once again backing the national Paralympic team as it prepares to participate in the upcoming 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. More than 4 000 athletes from 168 countries are expected to take part in the games.

Sasol has been involved in disability sport since 2008 when the company signed up to be a major sponsor of the South African national men’s wheelchair basketball team and the national Paralympic team in the build-up to the 2008 Beijing Paralympics in China..

Since then, our involvement in disability sport has enabled both teams to soar. At the 2012 London Paralympics, the South African Paralympic team amassed an incredible 29 medals, bringing South Africa’s total medal tally to an impressive158 – the highest since the country’s readmission to the global sporting arena in 1992.

Sasol is committed to South Africa’s advancement on all fronts. That is why we are also proud of our involvement in disability sport, which is aligned to our commitment to empowerment and breaking barriers to opportunities.

As we count down to the Rio Olympics in Brazil, Sasol wishes all the South African Paralympic team all the best. May your determination and fighting spirit continue to inspire South Africans and make us proud.

We are behind you all the way.
