’n Kampioen sonder tierlantyntjies

Met Murray La Vita vir DIE BURGER

Dond 2 Des 2010, 15:53

[U het hom dalk al daar sien sit op die stoep van Basic Bistro aan Kerkstraat in Stellenbosch. Die groot man met die vriendelike gesig: Conrad Stoltz, wêreldkampioen.
Die glimlag wat vanoggend onder sy rooi bofbalpet verskyn, laat hom seunsagtig lyk. Die sproete dra ook daartoe by.]

Jan Frodeno was here


2008 Olympic Triathlon Champion, Frodo, as the likable African German is known, has been a constant fixture here in Stellenbosch, South Africa over the past few months.

You often bump into the smiling face at the local coffee shops and street restaurants. It wasnt always song and dance though, along with some friends (Christian) he did some serious training and I even joined in on a few swim sets.

Jan calls is informal swim group the “Lunch Time group”,  but after a few sessions I called it the “Skin Cancer group”, but yes, other than the hole in the ozone and my weak skin, (German ancestry)  lunch time is the best swimming time in Stellenbosch.

All the best for the upcoming season Jan, we are rooting for you!
