Van Niekerk really looked like he was taking it easy. He started slow by comparison‚ and he wasn’t even in the lead when he entered the home straight‚ trailing Isaac Makwala of Botswana.
But he put his foot down to storm into the lead before easing up before the finish.

Full Race and Race highlights with English Commentary.




After winning the 300m race last week, smashing another another Michael Johnson record, Wayde van Niekerk now holds the unique disdtinction of being the only sprinter in history to have run faster than 10 seconds for 100m, 20 seconds for 200m, 44 seconds for 400m, and 30.85 seconds in the 300m. He ran the 300m at a time of 30.81 seconds.

 

Few people are likely to bet against Van Niekerk‚ who also has the 200m world lead‚ when he doubles in the 200m and 400m at the world championships in London next month.
