Must Read

Noemi Alphonse has become the first Mauritian to win a world champion title in para-athletics. She won the 100m T54 final in 16.23 seconds yesterday in Kobe, Japan, at the para-athletics world championships. This was Maurice’s second medal of the World Championships, following the silver medal won by Anaïs Angéline in the T37 long jump with a leap of 4.50m.

World runner-up in July 2023 in the T54 100m, Noemie Alphonse took gold this time. With a fiery start, she took the lead after just ten meters to cruise to the world championship title. “I had a revenge to take after my silver medal last year and especially before the Paralympics. I’ve worked for nine years to get to this point. I’d like to thank my parents, my coach and, above all, everyone who supported me in this project. I dedicate my victory to Mauritius”, she said.
