Our boy Wayde, The Dreamer, van Niekerk has managed to put South Africa on the map again after the sprinter shattered yet another SA record. The Olympic champion managed to set a brand new South African record of 19.84 seconds in the 200m at the Racers Grand Prix in Jamaica over the weekend. The current 400m World Record holder managed to reduced Anaso Jobodwana’s previous SA 200m record by 0.03 seconds, making quite the statement to his competitors after saying he’d shift his focus to the shorter form of track.
Wowzers, this dude is so quick! What an awesome weekend of sport for South Africa (well if you don’t count the cricket that is).
