General Information:

Morkel - 1948 - Carel Trichardt - then about 70, his sons Deon and Rim. To describe this old man as tough would be a hopeless understatement and he certainly walked me off my feet that day. Imagine a 19 year old trying to keep up with a man who had long since kissed his 70th birthday goodbye!
