Gold for Durban

The news of the month has been the Olympic Games 2012 in London which is finishing this weekend. South Africa scooped 6 medals and Durban's own Chad Le Clos walked away with Gold and Silver for his butterfly successes. We are so proud of you Chad!

The Olympic Games is close to my heart too as I served on the Durban Bid Committee for the 2004 Games competing with Cape Town and Johannesburg for the National Nomination when South Africa put forward it's bid city for the Games. Cape Town finally won this bid (I believe by default, as Durban has the space and infrastructure) and then lost to Athens who then hosted the 2004 Games.
