Gerhard Zandburg

It would be disrespectful to say that the South African gold medallists at the Athens Olympics � Ryk Neethling, Roland Schoeman and Lyndon Ferns � are past their best. They still rank among the best swimmers in the world, but the long-term future of swimming in South Africa belongs to Gerhard. Gerhard led the South African team to the World Short Course Games in Manchester earlier this year and won one of his heats, beating his 100m Africa record by 48 seconds.
