In a message addressed to FINA, Dr. Andrew Pipe, Chairman of the DCRB, recalled a “wonderful friend and colleague, a superb scientist, and an educator who influenced the lives of thousands of students in South Africa and so many others who were touched by his generosity of spirit. His warmth and gentle good humour will be missed by all on the FINA DCRB and his many other friends in the FINA family”.
To his family and friends, FINA addresses its sincere condolences.
