South Arica’s Wayne van Niekerk who provided the shock and awe at the Estadio Olimpico by obliterating Michael Johnson’s world 400m record from lane eight in 43.03secs.

Van Niekerk’s accomplishment was particularly impressive as the line-up included 2008 gold medallist, American LaShawn Merritt, and 2012 champion, Grenada’s Kirani James. The South African world champion was absolutely magnificent as he broke Michael Johnson’s 1999 time of 43.18 seconds.
