Cameron van der Burgh QuotesShowing all quotes
I’m trying to focus on the 100 and 200 breaststroke now. There’s no point concentrating on the 50 when it’s not in the Olympics. I’m not going to quit the 50 but it’s not my priority any more. I’ll do it but as part of my bid for gold at the other distances.

But now that I’ve won gold in the 2012 Olympics, I’ve achieved that goal and, for the first time in 14 years, I’ll have to change my pin.
