Kirsty Coventry – Olympic Gold Medalist
Aquatics are not as popular amongst the majority of the people in Zimbabwe. However, those who participate go all the way. I’m talking about divers and swimmers collecting gold medals in the midst of their pro compatriots. The few that choose to take up swimming are truly talented in the sport and when they get to the world stage, they shine. It took some research from our side to actually fully understand how our swimmers have challenged the best of the best, and still collect medals. We are going to look at those that took that first leap of faith and won the first of the many medals that Zimbabweans would win in the aquatic environment.
We will look at those that take pride in the water sports, the swimmers, divers, and the water polo participants. These are the people that we love and adore, the people we look up to, the people we admire. The people that represent us and rewrite history books, the people we call in our country, legends.
