KEYNOTE SPEAKER DAY ONE: PENNY HEYNS

As an international swimmer, Penny Heyns established herself as the world’s greatest female breaststroker of the 20th Century by becoming the only woman in Olympic history to win both the 100 and 200 meter breaststroke events in Atlanta 1996, bronze in Sydney 2000 and by breaking a total of 14 individual world records during her career. Furthermore, she is still the only Breaststroke swimmer, male or female, in the history of swimming to break long course world records in all three possible distances, namely the 50m, 100m and 200m. She has not, however, just excelled as a sports woman in the international arena, but has established herself, after her retirement in 2001, as a businesswoman, guest television presenter, coach and a sought after Professional Speaker. She is the Chairperson of the FINA Athletes Committee, FINA Bureau member and recently appointed member of the WADA Compliance Review Committee.
