QUOTES OF THE WEEK

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

I KNEW I must just wait, wait and move at the last 250m be­cause I don’t want to mess up my fel­low Africans’ race. I ac­tu­ally knew from the last lap that the record was gone and I just needed to main­tain the pace.

– Caster Se­menya, who took gold in the 1 500m at the Com­mon­wealth Games, smash­ing Zola’s Budd’s 34-yearold South African record.

I don’t have tears any more… some­times you feel lonely in the midst of peo­ple be­cause some­times the peo­ple you love are not there. – Win­nie Man­dela’s last con­ver­sa­tion with her

per­sonal as­sis­tant, Zodwa Zwane.

It is an amaz­ing evening, not only for swim­ming but also ath­let­ics, we won gold and sil­ver in the 100m on the track (Akani Sim­bine and Hen­ri­cho Bru­in­tjies). Cameron got us started with a win over the world record holder and Tat­jana Schoen­maker, the new star in the mak­ing. It is the best night we’ve ever had in Com­mon­wealth his­tory, it is nine medals on day five which is un­be­liev­able. – Chad le Clos, South Africa’s swim­ming sen­sa­tion who took five medals at the Com­mon­wealth Games .

No. I would prob­a­bly not choose to do that pub­licly, here. I think ev­ery­one should have con­trol over how their in­for­ma­tion is used. – Mark Zucker­berg, chief ex­ec­u­tive and founder of Face­book in re­ply to Sen­a­tor Dick Durbin who, dur­ing the US Se­nate joint hear­ing this week, asked if Zucker­berg would be com­fort­able shar­ing the name of the ho­tel he stayed in the pre­vi­ous night. He was tes­ti­fy­ing be­fore the US Congress over the Cam­bridge An­a­lyt­ica scan­dal this week re­gard­ing ex­po­sure of data of more than 80 mil­lion Face­book users.
