Nicholas Persse is happily married to his beautiful wife Laura and they currently reside in Johannesburg. Nicholas is the Head of Sport at a preparatory school in Randburg and thoroughly loves educating the future minds and training the future sports stars of his country. He enjoys the outdoors and remains active through playing cricket, hockey and the occasional game of golf. He is an enthusiastic sports fan and an incredibly proud brother to Lee-Ann, now competing in her second Olympics.
Having assessed the 2 world cups they have rowed in this year and being a new combination, Lee-Ann feels the pair still has room to improve and work towards a medal at the Rio Olympics, a very exciting prospect!
