article imageChad Le Clos creates face masks to assist Chad Le Clos Foundation

By Markos Papadatos     May 15, 2020 in Sports
Olympic gold medalist swimmer Chad Le Clos has created face masks in an effort to combat the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), and to support his foundation.
Le Clos is playing his part in the fight against Coronavirus in South Africa by designing and distributing face masks, which come in five different designs. Last month, he sent a message of hope to South Africa amid the pandemic.
As Digital Journal previously reported, Le Clos underwent two successful surgeries and he is "recovering well."
With these masks, he is raising money for his philanthropic organization, the Chad le Clos Foundation. Its goal is to develop swimming in the country of South Africa by focusing on children from underprivileged backgrounds, and it offers assistance to help swimmers reach their full potential.
