Wayde Van Niekerk set the Games alight on Sunday night (Monday morning, SA time) with a 43.03 run that broke American legend Michael Johnson’s world record that had stood since 1999.
His recent win put him on the spotlight and people all over the world started comparing him to Oscar Pistorius.
Some even started making memes asking him not to kill his girlfriend.
Speaking to the media, the 24 year old revealed that he does not own a gun and will never shoot his girlfriend like Oscar because he does not want to rot in prison like Pistorius.
His girlfriend flew to Rio with his family to watch the race.
