I was just very unlucky at school but it was part of my childhood journey and I didn't know I could report it.— Wayde van Niekerk, SA World Championship athlete
I didn't know that there were people who could help me and I ended up handling it on my own and trying to avoid the bullies as much as I could.— Wayde van Niekerk, SA World Championship athlete
Van Niekerk also shared details of his preparations ahead of the 2016 Olympics and recent developments in his athletics career.
I'm still busy finding some momentum before going to Europe in June then it's pure competition, day in and out. I am quite excited to see what this year has in store for me.— Wayde van Niekerk, SA World Championship athlete
