- PRESS RELEASE
Sasol, the international integrated energy and chemical company, confirmed its commitment to social development in Qatar by hosting another Definitely Able campaign initiative, featuring Oscar Pistorius, Olympic semi-finalist, Paralympic gold medallist, and world record holder.
The 'Run like the Wind' race, organised by Sasol Qatar in collaboration with the Doha Goals Forum, Qatar Olympic and Qatar Paralympic Committees, forms part of Sasol's on-going Definitely Able campaign which aims to highlight the positive contribution and possibilities for people living with disabilities in Qatar.
Pistorius also visited ACS Doha School, Shafallah Center, and the Al Noor Institute, where he interacted with students, telling them about his life journey and the challenges he has faced along the way. Oscar explained to students the meaning of being definitely able and encouraged them to focus on their abilities and not their disabilities.
Pistorius was described as being "a role model, a child's dream, and a wonderful life lesson," by one of the teachers attending the assembly.
Pistorius concluded his week-long stay in Qatar with a visit to the Qatar Paralympic Committee headquarters, where he met with Qatar's Paralympian Abdulrahman Abdulqader Abdulrahman and other Paralympic athletes, sharing with them his inspiring message.
Marjo Louw, Sasol's Qatar Country President thanked the Qatar Olympic and Paralympic Committees for their support in making the Definitely Able campaign a success.
