South Africa has produced many sporting greats; men and women who have achieved phenomenal successes. Penny Heyns is one such icon. Her medal record includes not only 14 individual world records in breaststroke, but also being the only woman in the history of the Olympic Games (Atlanta 1996) to have won both the 100m and 200m breaststroke events. She is South Africa's first post-apartheid Olympic gold medallist following the re-admission in 1992 - the first in 44 years.
