Seriously, what is wrong with these social justice warriors! It’s as though they can’t resist the impulse to stick their noses where they don’t belong.
In the aftermath of my SMH column and the interviews I gave last week regarding the illicit drug scandal, I’ve noticed a recurrent debate: are athletes role models?
When I hung up my boots in August last year I was immediately presented with the same question all athletes are eventually forced to answer:
I’m not much of a sports fan. While I can occasionally still get caught up in struggle and passion of a gripping contest, my interest seems to be waning with time.
I love quotations. They are windows into the minds of scientists, philosophers, writers, performers, politicians and even, occasionally, athletes.
As an eighteen-year-old fresh out of high school I was invited to pre-season training with the Natal Sharks. The sweltering temperatures in Summer time meant many of our fitness sessions were held on Durban beachfront.
