South Coaster of the Day

2011-03-22 00:00

GEORGE Bronkhorst has been living on the South Coast for a little over a year, but is already very fond of the place. The manager at C-Bali restaurant, Bronkhorst is a keen and accomplished sportsman who thinks that the Proteas have what it takes to win the cricket World Cup. The Witness spoke to him.


What do you enjoy most about the South Coast?

It is an up-and-coming place. People might think it is slow, but in holiday season it becomes very festive. It is really being put on the map now and it is awesome to be a part of it.

What do you do in your spare time?

In the mornings I’m at the gym and when I’m not at work I’m just relaxing or playing indoor cricket.

What is the biggest problem facing the world?

Global warming. Natural disasters like we have seen in Japan also remind you that you never know what can happen.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Still on the South Coast furthering my career with C-Bali.

What is your favourite place to visit on the coast?

I love my coffee so I would have to say Beaver Creek.

What do you make of sport on the South Coast?

There is so much talent here in rugby and in cricket. The new Ugu Sports Complex will provide a place for youngsters to excel and we will now see a lot more talent coming out of the South Coast.

How do you rate the Proteas’ chances at the World Cup?

If we keep our heads then we can take it. We are a good side, our reserves are hungry. They need our support.

What do you consider to be your greatest achievement so far?

Getting to where I am today by working hard and putting my head down.
