When the Pan Pacific Swimming Championships begin on August 21st on the Gold Coast in Australia, the image of South African athletes competing does not come immediately to mind.

By Swimming South Africa is sending an 18-swimmer team to the 2014 Pan Pacific Championships, each of whom must pay their own way.

Two-time South African Olympian Hercules Troyden Prinsloo will be representing his country against the powerful Australians and Americans in the 10 km marathon swim event. It should be an outstanding event and as competitive as the European Championships are on the other side of the world.
