With the paralympics about to kick off and the SA team having left for London 2012, we at the 'ZA Playground' were paid a visit by Malcolm Pringle.  He is about to head over to the games as a spectator this time round to cheer on our athletes.  He has been sponsored by Pick 'n Pay during his career and they are still looking after him.
