Bucs players such as Lennox Bacela, Menzi Masuku and Ayanda Gcaba got to spend time and interact with Wagner, who is blind, but despite his disability has achieved some of the most defying feats, including speed driving records; completing the ABSA Cape Epic (the world’s most gruelling mountain bike race); and sailed from the Cape to Rio.

Wagner shared some his messages with the Bucs players including, the Law of Trust, the Law of Appreciation and the Law of Giving which have allowed to overcome his adversities.

“When you meet someone with a disability, the normal thing is to feel a little bit sorry for them. It wasn’t the case this time round because of what he has achieved in life; it brings you back down to earth” said Bacela on the Bucs official website.

“He mentioned three key things and they apply for us as sportsmen in a team environment. It’s important that there is trust in each other, appreciation of the millions of supporters out there, and also giving back to the community positively,” added the striker.

Bucs Chairman Dr Irvin Khoza who was in attendance celebrated Wagner’s achievements.

“It was the triumph of the human spirit over adversity. Hein did not allow his condition to inhibit his dreams and aspirations, but most importantly, he used it to inspire players never to take their talent for granted,” added Khoza.
