Cameron van der Burgh remembering Alex


Beautiful words by South Africa’s world record holder Cameron van der Burgh, in honor of his late rival and friend Alexander Dale Oen. A small excerpt here, read the rest here on Cameron’s blog.

Thank you for inviting me into your home and sharing your life with me.
Fortunately I have only good memories about you and these will fill the gap that is left behind.
The late nights.
The meaningful conversations.
The uncontrollable laughs.
The whale that nearly ate us.
The races we had.
