After he broke the previous 400m world record of 43.18 seconds set by Michael Johnson 17 years ago. He was put under a spotlight by critics who ordered for him to be tested for drug use again.
Many believes he might have been setup, Wayde van Niekerk tested positive for 3 three different drugs including marijuana and cocaine and his medal is now at stake.
Athletes don’t get tested after COMPETING, this is a first and it’s because he broke a very old record.
According to sources people were shocked about Wayde van Niekerk’s history making victory and it became a deal because he is from Africa. If the Olympics committee decide to take back his medal and restore the world record to the one set 17 years ago it would be announced on the last day of the Olympics.
Apparently he is also going to be banned for life from the sport.
