Its absolutely disgusting that that someone steals in the first place but it just shows what a low life the person is who would steal hard earned paralympic medals. This thing is, they have no monetary value....but great personal value to Paralympic swimmer Benoit Huot.
Benoit went on to explain how he had hoped to pass down the medals to his kids!
"It is disgraceful and shameful that a person would steal mementoes such as these," said Swimming Canada CEO Ahmed El-Awadi. "Swimming Canada is calling on that person to return the medals, and we ask them to contact the Longueuil police as soon as possible to make arrangements.
"Benoit worked so hard to earn these medals as a representative of Canada. The most important part is that they are returned to him."
Lets hope they are returned to him..somehow i think he will be very lucky to get them back as it seems highly unlikely
