Cameron van der Burgh bags SA's first silver medal at Rio Games
Olympic swimmer Cameron van der Burgh has secured South Africa's first silver medal win at the 2016 Olympic games in Rio.
Van der Burgh took silver in the 100 meters breaststroke, despite initial skeptism that he would miss out the medal, explains EWN's sports editor Jean Smyth.
This his second Olympic medal after he set a new world record at the 2012 Summer Olympics where he won the gold medal at the 100m breaststroke.
The 28-year-old world champion is set to race again in the men's 4x100m medley relay on Friday.
According to Smyth, fans had anticipated an earlier win by swimmer Myles Brown and in the women's road race.
He explains that swimming has been a great sight for new world records and evolving leads in the different pool heats.
