From Gold medallist to a high court attorney

 paralympian

 When Paralympian Samkelo Radebe won a gold medal at the 2012 paralympics for the 4 x 100 relay in the world record time of 41.78 seconds, the world might have thought that he was contented with the feat and there was nothing more he aspired for.

 But foresighted Radebe regarded the glory as a springboard for big and better personal goals . Then, he enrolled for a law degree at the University of Johannesburg, which he has successfully completed and has been admitted as attorney of the High Court of South Africa.

 The 27 year old is evidently over the moon. In a tweet, he declared: My 2012 Paralympic gold medal doesn’t get me anything today! My qualification benefits are life time guaranteed!”

 Samkelo’s illustrious story is an inspiration to people with disabilities.
