Good day everyone
Owen van Renen, who is well known to many of the Masters swimmers, passed away at 4 am this morning 17 May 2022 in Johannesburg. He was Joyce Fyfe’s twin and Merle Angelos’ brother.  The van Renen brother and sisters contributed immensely to South African masters swimming at club, regional and national levels. Our thoughts and prayers are with Joyce and Merle and the wider family.
Owen served on the SAMS Committee for many years. He was also editor of the SAMS newsletter and Admin of the SA Masters  Swimming Facebook page. 🙏🏻
