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.

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.
