In the Words of South African Sporting Heroes
South Africans embrace their sportsmen and women as heroes and symbols of hope, courage and reconciliation. Collected in In the Words of South African Sporting Heroes are comments - from the inspirational to the humorous to the downright bizarre - by those we hold with such high esteem, on subjects as diverse as Captaincy, Fame, Life, Money in Sport and Being a South African.
