Chad Le Clos Gets Gold, 10 To Go

Following my Sunday night post about our first Gold medal, another SA swimmer does it again, in elegant style I might say.

Chad Le Clos got himself an African Record, a gold medal, a ‘suck that Michael Phelps‘, a nice bonus from SASCOC on the way, and a pat from South Africa on the shoulder πŸ™‚ Congrats Chad.

Again, here’s the latest Olympic medal map. China and USA leading ridiculously, though now US is leading overall

Gold Medal, 11 to go

This weekend I ‘discovered’ the London xx12 Olympic medal map, it’s at I watched as each country, specifically China and USA raked in the medals like they did in the Beijing Olympics, with nothing for team South Africa πŸ™

Just gt home from church, and checked the map with some expectations, and yay!Β Cameron Van Der Burgh got us gold! As the Mail & Guardian exaggerates the truth:

“South African swimming ace Cameron van der Burgh smashed the South African, African and Olympic records in the semifinals of the 100-metres breaststroke at the London Olympic Games on Saturday night.”

Well done on the world record Cameron! You’ve made us proud!

Here’s a screenshot of the medals map πŸ™‚
