According to the Team SA website, Dr Debbie Alexander, a SASCOC Board Member, will be one of the Paralympic Torch Bearer (PTR) torch bearers.
"I feel extremely proud, honoured and privileged, as an IPC Governing Board Member, to have been afforded the opportunity to be a Torchbearer at the Paralympic Games," Alexander told Team SA this week.
"Unfortunately South Africa has no athletes participating in these Games and to my knowledge there will be no other South African representation there. However, I hope my participation in the relay will afford everyone back home the opportunity to shine too."
The torch relay will take place over eight days and the flame will visit five domestic areas.
Alexander will be one of 800 torchbearers doing duty under the PRT slogan of 'Let Everyone Shine'.
The Winter Paralympics take place between March 9-18.
