It was a golden welcome back for South African Paralympic swimmer, Natalie du Toit today – first stop on her way home from Johannesburg’s O R Tambo airport was the Woodmead marketing headquarters of General Motors South Africa where the long-time Chevrolet brand ambassador was handed the keys to a Chevrolet Captiva.
Gold in colour, in keeping with the performance of this swimming sensation at the 2012 London Paralympic Games where she achieved a haul of three gold and one silver medal, the Chevrolet Captiva LTZ will be du Toit’s personal transport over the coming months as she attends the many official sporting and business engagements – Natalie is a very much in demand motivational speaker – that follows in the wake of her success in the 2012 Paralympic Games.
“Natalie has been a Chevrolet brand ambassador for a number of years now and we are excited to be able to continue this relationship with her as she moves on from her medal winning success in swimming competition to a new era in her career as a world class athlete,” says Chevrolet brand manager Tim Hendon. “She adds an element of excitement to an iconic automotive brand in South Africa which we trust will transport her in style as a South African and international sports celebrity.”
