De Klerk was St Johns’ and UJ’s first team rugby captain and Golden Lions rugby player. He stayed at Dromedaris, a UJ on-campus residence.
Ulrich Roux was Grey College and UJ’s Under 21 rugby players and also a Primarius of Dromedaris. He worked as a TV personality as a Legal Commentator in the Oscar Pistorius trial in 2014.
De Klerk and Roux took the challenge to raise funds for CoolRunningsTri charity drive, which has partnered with the Sunflower Foundation. CoolRunningsTri helps people affected by cancer directly or indirectly.
The two UJ alumni also completed a full Iron Man triathlon immediately after their arrival in PE.
