Interview: The Real Ryk Neethling

Ryk Neethling signs copiesChasing the DreamZiphezinhle Msimango recently conducted a Q&A-style interview with Ryk Neethling, one of South Africa’s sporting gems and the subject of Clinton van der Berg’s Chasing the Dream. The picture that emerges is quite different from the sportsman’s public image: Neethling refers to himself as a hard-working Afrikaans boy who enjoys spending time with his friends.

If your house caught fire what would you save? I’ve been burgled so many times that most of my things have been stolen. I’m not precious about stuff, but I would save my autographed copy of Nelson Mandela’s Long Walk to Freedom.

What are your creature comforts? My heated pool. In winter it’s nice to see steam coming from the pool when it’s freezing outside.
