There have been so many shockers and unusual events at this year’s Olympics at Rio Janeiro, Brazil.
It was first a winning dive by Bahamian sprinter, Shaunae Miller to win the women 400m event ahead of USA’s Allyson Felix.
Then came two USA and New Zealand runners- Abbey D’Agostino and Nikki Hamblin who helped each other finish the 5,000 metres race after they both collided.
And a Japanese Pole Vaulter, Hiroki Ogita whose penis – yes, penis – denied him Olympics glory.
But this trumps them all, a Mauritian triathlete, Fabienne St Louis will be competing in the race on today despite being diagnosed with cancer in December.
Fabienne has salivary cancer, a rare kind of cancer. She has had two surgeries on the tumour and cancerous cells.
Fabienne says she has dreamt if participating in the Olympics all her life and has the support of her family and the government.
One more thing, she has a tattoo of the Olympics symbol.
