About Calvyn Justus

The Olympics are a global phenomenon attended only by the lucky few, with competition limited to the most elite athletes on earth. But with the help of South African Olympic swimmer Calvyn Justus’ vlogging of the epic events and ceremonies, you could almost feel like you’re in the middle of the action. From training before the Games to the weight of emotions after the Closing Ceremony, Calvyn brought us along for a ride on the physical and emotional rollercoaster that is the Olympics. Since then, Calvyn has continued his filmmaking journey for tens of thousands of social media fans, travelling around the world on a never-ending adrenaline adventure.
