CAPE TOWN - Team South Africa's Chef de Mission Pieter Badenhorst is confident his team can win close to 30 medals at the London Paralympics, which will equal their total in Beijing.

On Wednesday, Ernst van Dyk competes in the road cycling individual H4 Time Trials and Kevin Paul is a medal hopeful in the 400m S10 freestyle final.

Badenhorst is also confident of two more gold medals on the track on Wednesday evening.

“We are looking forward to the 4x100 where Oscar Pretorius, Anrune Liebenberg, Samkelo Radebe and Zivan Smithwill be competing.”

Meanwhile, the International Paralympic Committee has decided not to charge Oscar Pistorious for his outburst.

This after he complained about a rival's blades following his defeat in the Paralympic 200-metre final over the weekend.

The Games will come to a close on September 9.
