In 2019 South African Oscar Chalupsky was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, an incurable bone marrow cancer, and told he had six months to live. With ongoing treatment, he continues to paddle kayaks, play golf, and defy every doctor’s prediction to date.

Oscar Chalupsky made history at the age of fifteen as the first person to win both the Junior and Senior Ironman titles on the same day at the South African National Lifesaving Championships. He was South Africa’s spokesman at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, and is a global surfski champion, having won the Molokai to Oahu World Surfski Marathon championships in Hawaii a record twelve times.
