When I was in London in 2017, watching Wayde van Niekerk compete at the 400m and 200m was exciting and lived up to the hype. Now, we have a healthy Van Niekerk, on the way back to elite level 400m running.

POTCHEFSTROOM (RSA): After clocking 45.89 in Potchefstroom last Tuesday, Olympic winner Wayde van Niekerk is looking to get more races under his belt, informs the Independent Online. "I wanted to do a nice quality race, and not being able to race since Europe until now, it would've been nice - who knows, maybe I decide to do another one (400m). Let's see how training goes and then I'll make up my mind. But I'd like to come back again next week (to Potchefstroom) and maybe the week after that. I need to get some races in my legs, just to get that nerves and that momentum into my mind and my body so that I can get back to that racing scenario, and get that emotions back so that I'm prepped for next year," he said. On the twitter he confirmed he will race 60 m and 150 m this Tuesday in Potchefstroom. It will be his first 60 m in competition and second 150 m, in 2011 he got 15.89 as 19 years old.
