World Record Holder Wayde Van Niekerk Question Mark Run In Potchefstroom

The reining Olympics Champion and 400m world record holder, South Africa Wayde Van Niekerk seems to be allowing more pressure coming to him despite recent change of guard.

The pressure to get on shape on time that thrusted him to change his ‘innate label coach’ is now culminating on the track. On Tuesday (23) at Potchefstroom Meet, Niekerk returned a pedestal 20.61s to win the 200 metre.
