Edwin Moses predicts good things for Wayde van Niekerk
Former world record-holder expects SA star to make a full comeback
Former 400m hurdles world record-holder Edwin Moses believes SA track star Wayde van Niekerk will make a full comeback from a knee injury that kept him out of competition all of 2018. Van Niekerk‚ who won the 400m at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games in a world record time of 43.03sec‚ suffered a knee injury playing a charity game of touch rugby in 2017. Initially the injury did not appear serious but it was later confirmed as an anterior cruciate ligament tear. Van Niekerk underwent surgery and a long period of rehabilitation.
Moses‚ who understands better than most the challenges athletes face to remain fit and on top of their game‚ backed Van Niekerk’s return.
