Welcome to Penny Heyns.com

As an international swimmer, Penny Heyns established herself as the world’s greatest female breaststroker of the 20th Century by becoming the only woman in Olympic history to win both the 100 and 200 meter breaststroke events in Atlanta 1996, bronze in Sydney 2000 and by breaking a total of 14 individual world records during her career.

After her retirement from professional swimming in 2001, Penny returned to South Africa to join former manager and current business partner Zelda van Vuuren, to establish Omni Share Holdings (Pty) Ltd; a company tasked with managing all the Penny Heyns brand related business ventures.

Over the past 10 years Penny has grown into a highly sought after professional speaker and consummate swimming clinician.
