Chad le Clos

Chad was born in Durban, South Africa, in 1992, the son of Bert and Geraldine. He is one of four children and part of a very tight-knit family. Football was Chad’s first love (he remains an avid Manchester United fan) and his competitive nature and determination to win shone through from an early age. But it was swimming where he really dominated.
