Rio Olympic gold medalist Van Niekerk at FCB

Postby FCBayernNews » Thu Sep 01, 2016 5:55 pm

FC Bayern were privileged to welcome South African gold medalist und football fan Wayde van Niekerk to the Säbener Strasse facility on Thursday, when the elite athlete dropped by a training session held by the German record champions as part of a television documentary made by Deutsche Telekom. Niekerk, who ran the 400m in record time (43.03s) in Rio to gain the coveted medal, had a chat to some of the Bayern players after the session. It was Xabi Alonso who spent the most time with the sprinter, watching the video of van Niekerk’s stellar performance again before handing him a Bayern shirt - complete with the world-record time and his first name on the back.

This kid made a phenomenal run at the finals(WR) when they came close to the turn he was still ahead of Kirani & Merritt two legends of 400m and that was already abnormal then they turned :shock: Shocked, Wayde van Niekerk just didn't want to stop he made a historic sprint at the final 100m out there!

Funny that Alonso is in the picture, maybe later they got a run & had a laugh at Xabi's explosiveness :lol:
