Natalie du Toit

Swimmer

Natalie du Toit led the South African Olympic and Paralympics teams in Beijing. And she restored some national pride after dismal performances by South Africans. The swimming sensation was the star of the games after she won five gold medals in all five events she entered: the 100m butterfly, 200m individual medley, 50m freestyle, 100m freestyle and 400m freestyle. She was named the female winner of the Whang Youn Dai Achievement Award for the 2008 games. � Lucky Sindane
