I feel very honoured and humbled to have been placed on the “City Press list of 100 World Class South Africans”, announced in September 2014. City Press states that they chose 100 people, “who have distinguished themselves on the world stage – and in many cases, their influence is immense. Their chief feat? An enduring greatness.”

Besides luminaries such as Nelson Mandela, Nadine Gordimer, Yvonne Chaka Chaka and Desmond Tutu, the selection for the list is extremely diverse in talents and achievements, including the likes of Elon Musk, Redi Tlabi, Ian Player, Zapiro, Mbogeni Ngema, Imtiaz Sooliman, Natalie du Toit, Peter Magubane, and Anant Singh.

The list includes artists, politicians, sportsmen, conservationists and philanthropists from all walks of life. David Grier and I were recognized for our endurance feats and associated fundraising efforts.
