Olympic gold medalist swimmer Lyndon Ferns says South Africa is not investing enough in swimming.
Ferns is one of South Africa's swimmers who did very well in the Olympic games. In 2004, he was a member of the 400m free relay team that finished eighth at the World Championships and set a new African record.
He is also an African senior champion for the 100m free and was third in the 100m fly.
