World 400m record holder Wayde van Niekerk continued his comeback with 100m and 200m victories at a small domestic meeting in South Africa on Saturday (22 Feb).

The South African has not competed on the international circuit since suffering a knee injury while participating in a celebrity rugby match in October 20178. He got married the same weekend.

In his second local appearance, Van Niekerk won the 200m in 20.31 and 100m in 10.10. He ran a hand-time 10.20 a week ago.

“Was good pushing the body today,” he tweeted.

  1. Good to see him running. However, all of this is at high altitude and there’s no wind info, so I’d take these times with a grain of salt. When he has some worthy competition or puts down a respectable 400m, then maybe the declarations that he’s back will be valid.
