He was a university student but decided to put his studies on hold while he focused on his swimming for London 2012. "I studied for a while but have put it on hold till after the Olympics as it is difficult to train hard and study. I will resume my studies in administration after the Olympics." (, 16 Apr 2012;, 27 Apr 2012)

He gets a lot of support from his family and friends, in both East London and Durban. "I must say, I get a lot of support from my family and, not only from Durban but from my home town of East London. I actually dedicated my 100m backstroke to my ‘oupa' [grandfather] who was diagnosed with cancer about three weeks ago," he said in April 2012. (, 16 Apr 2012;, 27 Apr 2012)
