Ruben Soraseb returned from a Paralympics Qualifying Round competition in Dubai where he obtained a fourth place and secured a place for participation at the 2012 Paralympics Games in London. Athletes from twenty three countries competed at the event. Ruben pushed (benched) a weight of 205kg at the event and says he is capable of improving on this performance. He might compete in Brazil at an International Paralympics Committee sanctioned warm-up event in December before leaving for Malaysia in February where he will be in action and compete in a Power lifting competition. Willem Venter, Ruben’s trainer, accredited Ruben’s improved performance to the natural “Pure Nutrition” supplements being provided to him through a sponsorship from Physiotherapist Anna-Mart Kruger.
