Wayde van Niekerk back on home soil ????!!!



Wayde van Niekerk was back in action on home soil after he had competed in Europe on his come back race in the 400m. Just like on his come back race in Europe the come back race in Potchefstroom was an exciting encounter which lacked no drama. Van Niekerk’s starting block block as he pushed off for the start of the 400m and he immediately stumbled before regaining composure and pursuing the leaders of the race. Zakithi Nene in particular was in the mood to cause a big upset and he looked well on path to doing so until Van Niekerk hauled him in on the home straight. Van Niekerk was pushed to the line in 45.89 by Nene who clocked 46.29 for second.

One thing is certain, South Africa had been craving competition again and Van Niekerk’s presence on the track drew attention back to Track & Field in SA.
