Hello!

Thanks for subbing my Olympic Fencing entry - I hope it's been reasonably painless!

I've got an extra 'hero' to be added to the end of the 'Olympic Heroes' section.

Pal Szekeres, Hungary

Pal Szekeres is the only person to have won medals in the Olympics and in the Paralympics, winning bronze as part of the Hungarian foil team in Seoul in 1988. In 1991 he was involved in a horrific car crash on the way back from a fencing tournament in Germany, suffering serious spinal damage. Six months later, he left hospital in a wheelchair. But just over a year later, he won Paralympic foil gold in Barcalona in 1992. He retained his foil gold in 1996, and took the sabre gold for good measure. In 2000 he took bronze in foil, and in 2004 won a sabre bronze on his 40th birthday. Since his retirement, Pal Szekeres has been an active figure in the administration and promotion of paralympic sport, and has also worked for the Hungarian government.
