He is Africa's first home-trained swimming record holder and the youngest at the age of 20. After the Olympics debacle, there is hope for South Africa's water babies. Cameron van der Burgh, a Pretoria University law student, broke the world 50m record at South Africa's national championships this year and in so doing collected his third world record. He set the 50m and 100m short-course breaststroke records last year. He also clinched the overall points awards in the Fina Arena Swimming World Cup circuit in November � the Sport's World Cup title. He took home a US$100 000 cheque that comes with the award. � Phathisani Moyo
