Book Launch (Hyde Park): Ryk Neethling, Chasing the Dream by Clinton van der Berg

Ryk Neethling, Chasing the DreamLesley Dicks & Ryk Neethling Ryk Neethling will be back in Johannesburg by popular demand for the second Joburg launch of his life story, Ryk Neethling, Chasing the Dream by Clinton Van der Berg.

In this book, Ryk tells of his travels to the US to pursue his Olympic dream, the experience of winning gold in Athens in 2004, the murky world of steroids in sport, his ongoing battle with the sport’s administrators; his struggles with his Afrikaner identity, and his rejection of a multimillion-dollar offer to swim for another country. The book takes the story up to the end of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, in which Ryk became the only South African to have competed in four successive Olympic Games.

We’ll see you there!
