SA athletic sensation, Wayde van Niekerk, has made history yet again by becoming the first man to run the 100m in under 10 seconds, the 200m in under 20 seconds and the 400m in under 44 seconds.

702's John Robbie spoke to him regarding his recent milestones as well as the road ahead in his career.

Listen to the interview below:

I really just thought that I'd try my best to take this opportunity because this was my only 100m opportunity I had this year.

Wayde van Niekerk, SA World Championship athlete

It's really been a blessing. Things that I haven't even thought I'd be capable of having and achieving are coming my direction and it's a humbling and great feeling.

Wayde van Niekerk, SA World Championship athlete

I can't call it pressure exactly because as an athlete, there's always pressure whether you're winning or losing.

Wayde van Niekerk, SA World Championship athlete

Trying to keep my life as simple as I can so I can always have the best mindset when it comes to races. I have an amazing support structure.
