Tunisian athletes talk to SNTV about their success at the 2012 London Paralympics Games.
SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Maroua Ibrahimi, Gold, Women Club Throw - F31/32/5:
"I have been practising for three years. I took part in a New Zealand Tournament where I won gold. Now I have won another medal at the Paralympic Games. I am very happy and I would like to dedicate this achievement to the Tunisian people."
SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Walid Ktila, Gold, 200m - T34 :
"It was very difficult to prepare for this Paralympics. It took four years of hard work and sacrifices. I am very pleased that all those sacrifices have paid off."
SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Raoua Tlili, Silver Women's Discus Throw - F40:
"I won silver at the 2012 Paralympic Games. I am hopeful of winning another medal in the shot-put, I am training very hard to get the gold this time. I would like to show that disability has never been a barrier for women. We have proved that with the great results we have achieved and the gold medals we have won for Tunisia."
SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Somaya Bosaid, Silver, Women's 400m - T13:
"I took part in the 400 metres. My best events are the the 800 metres and 1500 metres. This is my second Paralympics. In Beijing I won two gold medals. Unfortunately they removed both the 800 metres and 1500 metres from the schedule here in London. That forced me to compete in the 400 metres. In Beijing I came fourth, but thankfully I managed to win silver here although it is not my speciality. I trained for three months for the 400 metres race. I am glad I managed to win this medal."
