Cameron van den Burgh

On 29 July 2012 Cameron van den Burgh won the first gold medal for Africa at the 2012 London Olympics, and set a new World Record for the 100 meter breaststroke.

Cameron is considered one of the strongest breaststrokers in the world over short distance. His first major international medal came at the 2007 World Championships in Melbourne, where he won bronze in the 50m breaststroke. In 2008, he captured the attention of the world’s swimming fans by winning the award for Best Male Swimmer Overall at the FINA-Arena World Cup (short course), in the process breaking three world records (short course) in Moscow and Stockholm.

In 2008 Cameron became the first man in the world to break the 26-second wall in 50m breaststroke, swimming a time of 25.94.

But his rise to true international fame came with his 50m breaststroke title at the 2009 World Championships in Rome, where he won in a new world record of 26.67. At the same championships he also won a bronze medal in 100m breaststroke.

In 2010 the South African champion confirmed his international supremacy as one of the world’s strongest breaststrokers. At the October Commonwealth Games, he won gold in both the 50m and 100m breaststroke, and at the World Short Course Championships in Dubai in December, he won the world title for the 100m breaststroke, while picking up a silver medal at the 50m distance.
