We all know how incredible South Africans are and the sporting arena is no different:
Extreme swimmer Lewis Gordon Pugh made history when he became the first person to swim to the North Pole. The environmental activist, who grew up in South Africa, braved the icy waters of the Arctic and swam one kilometer to the most northern point of the world in a time of 18 minutes and 50 seconds, in temperatures of -1.8C (28.7F), the coldest waters a human has swum in.
SA’s Robbie Hunter made history (19/07/2007) by becoming the first African cyclist to win a stage at the Tour de France.
