In the Video of the Week, we take a trip to Namibia to meet two very special people who have overcome adversity to achieve great things in the world of sport. 

Deon Namiseb has suffered from various disabilities since birth and almost died as a baby. Today, thanks to his willpower and his aunt, he has become one of the figureheads of disability sport in Namibia. 

Rosemary, who was hit by a car as a child and has battled learning difficulties ever since, has also found her calling in life, confounding the expectations of those around her in the process. She celebrated great success at a Football for Hope festival in South Africa and has now developed a healthy self-confidence.

Click on the video above to see what Deon and Rosemary have achieved, how they won the battle with their disabilities and their hopes for the future.
