For many swimming enthusiasts, even before the Beijing Olympics, there has been a noticeably slow–yet interesting rise of swimming stars coming from the African continent. Most of the impact from the African nations has been primarily that of  South Africa. Of course there was a huge media attention derived from the incredible performances of Kirsty Conventry during the 2004 Olympics in Athens and continued through to the World Champs in 2009. This summer in London, however, Jason Dunford and David Dunford plan on making finals and pushing the limit as far as they can…maybe even a podium position for a son of Kenya!
