[ENGLISH] WAYDE VAN NIEKERK SUFFERS SERIOUS KNEE INJURY IN CELEBRITY TOUCH RUGBY GAME
The 400m world record holder, reigning Olympic and world champion, Wayde van Niekerk @waydedreamer has seriously injured his knee during a celebrity touch rugby match.

The 25-year-old South African will now face six months of rehabilitation in the US, Qatar and South Africa after sustaining medial and lateral tears of the meniscus and tearing his anterior cruciate ligament playing rugby in Cape Town.

In a statement Van Niekerk, who was due to undergo surgery at the Steadman Clinic in Colorado on Tuesday, said he hoped to be back in the summer of 2018.

"This is sport and these things happen. I trust that the team I have around me, including the medical professionals, will make this process as smooth as possible," Van Niekerk said.

such fail.. lmao. I know a few other names on that list: Joshua and Hamilton. Mo is a huge fan of both. Hamilton has done the Mobot.

Love Mo <3 Happy for him. IMHO, seems like a genuinely great dude.

Can't wait to see him take on the marathon .. his first marathon will be in London, vs Kipchoge ................................... :wowthatwasnutswtf:

He's doing the Doha Half marathon pretty soon too.

Christian Coleman breaks the Indoor 60m World Record

I just came across while browsing google news. Wow. That guy is on the way. I mistook it to be normal but it's indoor. But world record nevertheless.
