MetroFM and 5FM Gaga Over Golden Swimmers!

Posted by radio On August - 16 - 2012

By Thato Mokhou


Gold medalists Chad Le Clos and Cameron van der Burgh have received a tumultuous welcome from the media as well as hundreds of supporters since their arrival from the London Olympics 2012. They made an appearance at SA’s top commercial radio stations, Metro FM and 5FM, earlier this week, charmingly showing off their medals. 5FM’s Gareth Cliff celebrated with Cameron on his breakfast show while Chad  appeared on Metro FM’s  TSI with Amon and Thato and he later serenaded the ladies on the Fresh Drive.


Gareth and his team never fail to entertain as they jokingly made references to perculiar stories that emerged from the Olympics, such as the unofficial condoms found in an Olympics village, which headlined on international news sites.  Gareth could not resist exploring the  idea of athletes having sultry engagements outside of the Olympics arenas. However, Cameron shyly denied engaging in any secret rendezvous as he had his eyes set only on his girlfriend, who had joined him over the period of the tournament.   “As athletes we were not allowed to touch a drop of alcohol,” he said.  This must have eliminated all possibility for any wild behaviour.


The conversation continued as Cameron interacted with the listeners who asked about his experience in London, the thrill of winning the 100 metres breaststroke in world record time and also meeting the invincible American swimmer, Michael Phelps.   A picture of his sterling medal was shared on Gareth’s twitter page.

A fan, Kirat Diar Lalla, got a snapshot with Cameron which he posted onto his Facebook profile page.

Compatriot Chad Le Clos who snatched the gold in the final stroke of the 200 butterfly from American Michael Phelps spent lunchtime with MetroFM’s duo, Amon Mokoena and Thato Mataboge, and joined 5FM’s Nicole da Silva (standing in for DJ Fresh), Poppy Ntshongwana and the rest of the Fresh Drive team an hour later.


During each interview he was praised for his fantastic win against Olympic champion, Michael Phelps and  he admitted to being in total disbelief over the victory.  His success has also attracted attention from eligible girls, he certainly had Nicole and Poppy in his clench as they pleaded with him to serenade them with a classic song but he failed to deliver.   His cute dimple won Nicole over evidently in the photo she posted onto her Twitter page.

Metro FM’s Thato comically tweeted about Chad’s surname and only SeSotho speakers would appreciate the humour.

LOL! RT @MrThato: Apparently Basotho are convinced Chad LeClos are 2 different people.


Other athletes featured on Gareth’s show were gold medal winning lightweight 4: Sizwe Ndlovu, Matthew Brittain, John Smith and James Thompson.   The photo was posted onto Gareth’s Facebook page.
