Johannesburg - Swimming South Africa has expressed its sadness on Friday at the death of Nelson Mandela.

The passing of Madiba is a great loss not just for his family and the country but the world at large, Swimming SA said in a statement.

Swimming has taken Madiba's values and words to heart and hope to live by them daily by creating hope for the many children that are taught to swim and ensuring that one less child will drown, Swimming SA said.

The medal winning performances of swimmers continue to inspire and unite the country, the statement said.

Swimming SA said Madiba will be remembered by ensuring that the organisation continues to embed the values he held so dear into our daily lives and organisation.

Heartfelt condolences go out to his family and to the nation in remembrance of this great leader of our nation. May his soul rest in peace.
