In a stunning display of skill and determination, Mauritian athlete Noemi Alphonse has won the gold medal in the 100m T34 event at the World Para Athletics Championships.

The 22nd of May saw Alphonse take to the track, where she finished first in a time of 16.23 seconds, leaving her competitors in her wake.

The 24-year-old athlete from Mauritius dominated the competition, beating out Chinese competitor Zhaoqian Zhou by 0.11 seconds, and Swiss athlete Licia Mussinelli by 0.69 seconds.

Rounding out the top four was fellow Mauritian athlete Brandy Perrine, who narrowly missed out on the bronze medal, finishing just 0.05 seconds behind Mussinelli.

Alphonse’s impressive performance was a testament to her hard work and dedication, having spent nine years training for this moment.

In a post-race interview, she credited her success to her parents, teammates, and coaches, as well as the support of the Mauritius Sports Ministry and her coach Jean-Marie Bhugeerathee.

“This victory is a result of nine years of hard work and training,” Alphonse said.

“I want to thank my parents, my teammates, the Ministry of Sports, and everyone who has supported me throughout my journey. I also want to thank my coach, Jean-Marie Bhugeerathee, who has always believed in me and pushed me to be my best.”

But Alphonse’s success is not limited to just one event. She will be joined by Perrine in the 400m T34 event later on same day, May 22, where they will both compete in their respective heats.

Mauritius will be behind them as they take to the track, eager to see what they can achieve next. With their impressive performances so far, anything is possible for this talented duo.
