Okkert Brits is a castaway from Survivor South Africa: Santa Carolina.


Retrieved from

Claim to Fame: Olympic athlete Okkert Brits is one of South Africa's all-time sporting legends. This famous pole-vaulter is one of the few athletes worldwide who are part of the so-called prestigious 'six-metre club' and with his personal best of 6.03m, achieved in 1995, he still holds the African and Commonwealth records. Okkert was also the world's number one vaulter in 2003 and won numerous gold, silver and bronze medals.
Age: 30s
Home Life: Married, two children.
Charity: The Give Me a Chance Foundation helps children to make their dreams come true by raising funds for scholarship programmes as well as establishing a network of strong role models to mentor these children. Every cent received goes directly towards the children's school and hostel fees, school clothing, books and sport equipment.
Factoid: Okkert, through Life Fitness, now specialises in top-of-the-range fitness equipment, supplied to the corporate, consumer and commercial markets.
Why he could win: He is an amazing athlete and his endurance, wonderful temperament and stamina could be immensely valuable on a deserted island.
