Swimming Olympian Chad Le Clos will soon call Cape Town home

South African swimming champion, Chad le Clos, announced on Twitter that he will be relocating to Cape Town.

Speaking on KFM Breakfast with Ryan O'Connor, le Clos said Cape Town is his favourite city and moving here is a dream come true.

Le Clos will soon be setting up a swimming clinic in Cape Town - The Chad Le Clos Academy.

Le Clos won four Olympic medals, including gold, in the 200m butterfly at the 2012 Olympic Games.

We have big plans for the future and the future of children of South Africa. I want to build a platform for them and hopefully they can become Olympians like myself.
