As you might know by now, I’m proudly South African. Here are some more facts about South Africa that make this country awesome.
South Africa has the world’s largest individually timed cycle race (the Cape Argus which I completed for the third time this year :)), the world’s largest open water swimming event (the Midmar Mile), and the world’s largest ultra-marathon (the Comrades Marathon).
Afrikaans, my home language, is the youngest language in the world. Afrikaans was first recognised as an official language in 1925.
South Africa is the only country that has hosted a cricket, soccer and rugby world cup.
