South African Paralympic swimmer Natalie du Toit brought home the gold from London - then collected more here in SA...

She was handed handed the keys to a gold Chevrolet Captiva.

Du Toit scored three gold and one silver medal at the 2012 London Paralympic games so, keeping with the theme, the gold car was given to the long-time Chevrolet brand ambassador.

PERSONAL TRANSPORT

The Chevrolet Captiva LTZ will be Du Toit’s personal transport over the coming months as she attends official sporting and business engagements – she is an in demand motivational speaker – that follows her success in the 2012 Paralympics.

Chevrolet brand manager Tim Hendon said: “Natalie has been a Chevrolet brand ambassador for a number of years 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.

“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.”
