Ryk Neethling: Chasing the Dream[]

This autobiography is the story of a fiercely determined swimmer from Bloemfontein who overcame great odds - a near-drowning, social awkwardness and family tragedy - to become an Olympic and NCAA champion. The book goes right up to the end of the 2008 Olympics, in which Ryk became the only South African swimmer to compete in four successive Olympic Games.
