Photo Vault: Behind the Scenes with Cameron van der Burgh and the Movember Relay Challenge

Take a look at the behind-the-scenes photos from the Movember Relay Challenge thrown down by South Africa’s World Record-holding and Olympic champion breaststroker Cameron Van der Burgh, former World Champ Gerhard Zandberg, World Champs bronze medalist Giulio Zorzi and African Championships medalist Shaun Harris (a cancer survivor now in remission).


SwimSwam is looking for videos from relay teams who want to take Cameron van der Burgh and the rest of his Tuks Team up on their challenge. Remember the rules as set out in the challenge:

  1. Find three friends.
  2. Film yourselves swimming a 4×50 medley relay.
  3. All relay members must sport mustaches – real or drawn on. For female challengers (or men who are, shall we say, mustache-challenged), get out your sharpies and show off your best artwork.
  4. Send us the video. Deadline is December 15th to be eligible for prizes.

If you can beat the South Africans’ time, you move into the lead! If you don’t meet the time, you must donate any amount you wish to cancer research at
