Gold for the Steelers

October 18, 2016

Protect are thrilled to congratulate their employee and Australian Paralympic Rugby champion Ben Fawcett on his recent success in the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio De Janeiro.  The gold medalists known as the ‘Steelers’, celebrated their win in the final with a nail-biting double overtime thriller against the USA. The sweetest part – it’s the first time Australia has defeated their major rival in a major international competition.
After wins against Great Britain, Brazil, Canada and Japan in the lead up to the final, Ben finally tasted gold. This success has seen the Steelers become the first team in history to win consecutive Paralympic and World Championship titles in a four year period.
"It was a truly unbelievable experience. You work extremely hard individually and with your team mates to prepare as best as possible. But then nothing prepares you for a double overtime final in a stadium where you can't hear your team mate five metres away from you! And to finish it with gold... it's lucky I have the medal, photos, and the DVD, because otherwise you wouldn't believe me!"
Congratulations boys!
