Wayde Sets New Personal Best in 100m Win




Clocking a new personal best, Wayde van Niekerk has given us one more reason to believe that he is set to become the all-time greatest.

Running the 100m in Velenje, Slovenia on Tuesday, he won at 9.94 seconds, his second sub-10 and beating his personal best of by 0.04 seconds.

He ran his first sub-10 on home soil in March 2016 in Bloemfontein, so this would be the first time he ran a sub-10 in an international race.

Wayde still remains the only man to have run a sub-10, sub-20, and sub-44 in the 100m, 200m and 400m respectively, demonstrating his ability to compete in all sprinting distances.



He will be running the 300m in his next race at the end of this month at the Ostrava Golden Spike meeting after which he will be competing in his first 400m for the year in July at the Lausanne meeting.

He will be taking on a 200m/400m double in the world championships in London in August.
