The Springbok Rugby team came to Shark Park yesterday as part of their build up preparations for the upcoming Lions Test Series.The team had no idea that they were going to be freediving with sharks until they arrived at Shark Park. There was a hushed silence when Gail gave her briefing and groans of disbelief when they were told to don the wetsuits that were kindly donated to the event by Quiksilver. Once in the water the guys were amazing and by the smiles on their faces seemed to really enjoy themselves.
Once word was out the kids arrived on the beach in droves to get a picture or autograph with the World Champions and they were not disappointed by their rugby heroes.
Best of luck to the Springboks for the upcoming test series and thanks for Giving Sharks a Chance from the staff at Blue Wilderness.
