Terence Parkin Honored As Brand Ambassador For Deaf & Blind

Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation South AfricaParkin, a swimmer, was born deaf, but has never let that stand in the way of his goals. This is exemplified by the fact that he is currently the most decorated Deaflympic athlete in the world. He has won 33 Deaflympic medals and brought home a silver medal for SA in the 2000 Summer Olympics. As an Ambassador of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, Parkin travels across the world, giving talks at various events on issues such as water safety and coaching children on how to swim to prevent drowning fatalities, something which is personally meaningful to him given that in 2011 he saved a seven year old boy from drowning by rescuing him and resuscitating him. Parkin’s talent, energy and drive are helping to raise awareness about the issues around water safety in marginalised communities across the globe. He recently represented the Foundation at the 2017 Deaflympics in Turkey and met with Deaflympic officials. He has also been invited to speak on behalf of the Foundation in a number of countries including Pakistan, Russia, Australia, China and the Philippines.
