Jendamark dived into the title sponsorship of Africa’s premier Indian Ocean swim in 2014. Since then, this iconic open water event has grown exponentially, attracting both competitive and social swimmers to the challenging conditions in beautiful Algoa Bay.

It was the first time that a side from a historically disadvantaged township had claimed the title.

The hub aims to get youngsters off the streets of New Brighton and to teach them

The previous year, he claimed the overall course record at Ironman World Championships in Kona as an age-grouper – and still holds that record today. Jendamark’s sponsorship has enabled Kyle to continue training full-time as a professional triathlete and to represent South Africa at Ironman events across the globe.
