Van Niekerk is back
BLOEMFONTEIN (RSA, Feb 23): Olympic 400m champion Wayde van Niekerk made his comeback after injury by winning the 400m at the Free State Championships on Saturday in 47.28. The South African, who last competed at the 2017 World Championships before suffering a knee injury during a rugby match that October, beat hurdler Cornel Fredericks.
runblogrun opines: One of the most exciting athletes in our sport, Wayde Van Niekerk was injured while playing rubgy in October 2017. Lots of people should be given credit on helping Wayde rehab his knee, as the adidas sponsored and current Olympic, World Champion and World record holder returns to form. His win in 2016 was exciting and his 2017 win built on the legend. We look forward to his return to form.
