This book chronicles the careers of three leading lights among the wealth of distance running in South Africa, which hit a purple patch in the eighties.
Apartheid had seen the country evolve as a political pariah of the world. Sporting competition was isolated to local and national events, with limited direct comparison to international levels. It seemed the least-likely time for world-class performances, and yet ironically, it was this period that spawned South Africa’s golden age of distance running.
