Commonwealth Games

Van der Burgh looking more and more, um, 'biff'

2014-07-29 11:18
Cape Town - It's clear where Graeme Smith lookalike Cameron van der Burgh has been spending his time of late - in the gym!

Smith, the former Proteas Test skipper, and multiple world and Olympic champion Van der Burgh have long since been considered "twins" (do you see the resemblance?)

While Smith is now retired from cricket and happily married, Van der Burgh has been putting in the hours in the pool in preparation for the current Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and the upcoming 2016 Olympics in Brazil.

Van der Burgh's hard work has paid off handsomely with a silver medal in the 100m breaststroke and a stunning victory in Monday's 50m breaststroke final in which he smashed the Games record.

Enjoy ladies...
