Meet swimming legend, Ryk Neethling, who told his story to sportswriter Clinton van der Berg. The result is the bestselling book, Ryk Neethling: Chasing the Dream.
The story of Ryk Neethling is much more than the story of a triumphant sportsman. It is the story of a fiercely determined swimmer from Bloemfontein who overcame great odds - a near-drowning, social awkwardness and family tragedy - to become an Olympic champion.
Meet Ryk and Clinton and get a signed copy of this must-have biography.
