Cilliers Botha

Not sure if I'm spelling it correctly, but does anyone know the name "Cilliers Botha"? I assume this track and field athlete is from South Africa. I don't believe this athlete is still alive, but I would like to know more about this person. Thanks for any help.

He is listed here:

http://www.gbrathletics.com/nc/rsa.htm

as 1983 LJ champion.

Not much, but it may at least give a date range and event to search more deeply.
:)

Update: Just searched all-athletics.com, which lists his dob as 12 May 1960, and
this one LJ performance (noted as his PB):

8.14 Potchefstroom (RSA) 22.03.1982

Thanks very much, Master Po. That's a big help. I'm interested in his date of death and cause of death (if he is dead).
