About

Already a Commonwealth Games gold medallist by the age of 18, he’s one of the coming stars of South African swimming. Lives by the quote, “you cannot live here without trusting existence. If you trust consciously, lovingly, that is devotion.” A student in Georgia, USA, Coetzé gifted his gold medal won at the 2023 SA National Championships to the Deputy Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture, Nocawe Mafu. Has qualified for the Paris Games in both the 100m and 200m backstroke.
