For most people, Chad Ho in mostly notorious for his numerous wins at the Midmar Mile. However, his achievements extend way past the Midmar Mile. He has represented South Africa at numerous World Championships as well as the 2008 Olympics. He has just come off a gold medal win at the 2015 World Aquatics Championships men’s 5km open water swim , and has recently qualified for the Marathon Swim at the Rio 2016 Olympics. Hence I thought it was a good time to catch up with him again. But this time I decided to change it up a bit, and move from the confines of the pool, to the open waters of the Indian Ocean.
