Just a week after South Africa’s Akani Simbine set the fastest 100m time this year HERE, another South African has made sprinting history. Wayde Van Niekerk has become the first sprinter in history to run under 10 seconds for the 100 meters, under 20 seconds for the 200 meters and under 44 seconds for the 400 meters. No other athlete has achieved that. Ever.
Here’s his sub 10 second 100 meter sprint at the Free State Championships in Bloemfontein on Saturday.
Proudly South African.
