LONDON (GBR): Wayde Van Niekerk believes he is in shape to return to sub-44 second form after clocking 44.08 in Silesia.
“Things are moving in a positive direction. I have been able to train consistently. It is my fastest run in seven years and 44.0 shows that 43 seconds is possible.
The competition in my event is getting stronger, so I need to work to get better as well. I do not feel any special pressure, but it is natural for an athlete to want to reach their best possible level,” he said.
Van Niekerk headlines the 400m in the London Diamond League on Sunday.
