We at The Journalist wish to salute former Capetonian and student at the University of Free State Wayde van Niekerk for his astonishing achievements on the athletic tracks of the world.

This young man has become the first person in history to run the 400m in under 44s, the 200m in under 20s and a sub 10s run for the 100m.

This is an extraordinary achievement for Wayde that does his family, community and country proud.

Wayde is the current world 800m champion. In our main edition for the month, due on 30 March, we will carry more content on the amazing athletic exploits of Wayde and a host of other young South Africans.
