This is Dr. Christian Barnard. He performed the world's first human heart transplant operation on 3 December 1967 in S. Africa. The patient was a 54-year-old man suffering from incurable heart disease. Barnard later wrote, "If a lion chases you to the bank of a river filled with crocodiles, you will leap in, convinced you can swim to the other side." The donor heart came from a woman who had been brain damaged in an accident.  The doctor marveled, 'It works.' The patient lived for 18 days.

Christiaan Neethling Barnard November 1922 – 2 September was a South African cardiac surgeon who performed the world's first successful human-to-human heart transplant assisted by his brother, Marius Barnard.

Gerhardus Christian Coetzee (born 8 April 1955 in Boksburg), better known as Gerrie Coetzee, is a South African former boxer. He made history twice: he was the first boxer from the African continent ever to fight for, and win, a world heavyweight title. His nickname was The Bionic Hand, because he always had trouble with his right hand. His Afrikaans nickname was "Seer Handjies" or little sore hands, named so by fellow South African boxing great Kallie Knoetze.
