Clarice le Roux, one of SA’s trend setters and a youth inspirational figure, in and out of the swimming pool is one to watch out for in 2016. Young citizens that choose to be change makers no matter what their hands find to do is what uplifts and inspires our nation. All the best for 2016 Clarice as you pursue the new chapter at Kovies. The University of the Free State is blessed to have you not only for academic determination but also for your sporting excellence.
