    WAYDE VAN NIEKERK: I’M CHASING USAIN BOLT’S OLYMPIC RECORDS


    “Usain Bolt is motivating and inspiring me to want to try and do what he’s done,” van Niekerk says. “He’s set out such high goals for us to chase. He’s definitely someone I look up to to feed off and try and achieve what he’s achieved, and obviously, on that journey, if I have the opportunity to run against him, it would be more than just a blessing and an honor. He has single-handedly taken track and field to a different level and I will always have respect towards him and look up to him as someone who has been an idol to the sports —and a clean idol.”
