The Paralympics might be over, but there's a good chance this isn't the last we've seen of some of our para-athletes.

The success of the New Zealand team has raised not only their profile but also their marketability.

A good example is Liam Malone, the Kiwi blade runner you probably hadn't heard of two weeks ago.

The whole world is going crazy for the man who broke two of Oscar Pistorius' records on the track.

The question now, is could a para-athlete win the supreme Halberg award for the first time?
