Cheering on our Olympic swimmers

We dive into the Olympic Games with South African swimming stars Chad Ho and Matthew Meyer.

South Africa’s swimmers have consistently brought us Olympic glory. Ryk, Cameron, Roland and Chad are household names and in that proud tradition Chad Ho and Matthew Meyer are our new contenders for gold at the Rio Games.

If open water swimming isn’t yet a sponsored sport here, Chad Ho never let that get in his way. Last year, he used crowdfunding to raise the funds needed to compete and then repaid his funders by promptly winning the 2015 World Aquatics Championships men's 5km open water swim.

Chad’s girlfriend Cassandra Wright sees him train ten times a week in the pool, three times at gym and she’s witnessed the results. That Matthew is headed for Rio whilst still at school astonishes some but not his mother Wendy Meyer or his sister Tracy-Lea. The time he swam to qualify was hard earned. We encourage all South Africans to follow Chad and Matthew’s races, shout, scream if you must and they will rise to the occasion.
