We have traveled with Swimming South Africa’s resident vlogger Calvyn Justus to FINA World Cup Meets in Doha and Dubai, then through Olympic team training camp in Florida, where we met the rest of the South African team. We even laughed along with his Most Annoying Types of Swimmers.
Now, Justus is bringing us along on his Rio 2016 Olympic experience, and we couldn’t be happier for it.
In the above video, Justus takes us through his seven days in Rio. You get to see the Olympic Village, the competition pool, the Parade of Nations, the warm up pool, and more, all from the perspective of an Olympic swimmer.
There are also short cameos from other members of the South African team, including Cameron van der Burgh (and his 100 breast silver medal), Sebastien Rousseau, and Douglas Erasmus.
Justus swam the third leg of the South African men’s 4 x 200m free relay. The team ended up 10th overall with 7:12.61, missing the final. You can see their splits below:
- Myles Brown: 1:46.47
- Sebastein Rousseau: 1:48.35
- Calvyn Justus: 1:49.04
- Dylan Bosch: 1:48.75
