PRETORIA (RSA): Olympic champion and world record-holder Wayde van Niekerk believes he can be faster than ever in the 400m despite a lengthy injury lay-off, informs The Guardian. “I think I can. I’ve shown a lot of positive signs in training of being faster than before and I’ve matured way more mentally. But I know it’s one thing doing it in training and a different thing back on the track. So it’s really about getting that consistency in terms of being a competitor.” On breaking the 43 second-barrier, he said: “Well, having 43.03 as my current record, sub-43 is my only next step to take. There’s no other area to go in terms of a personal best. It means going sub-43.”
