SPRINT CHAMP SPLICED
WORLD 400m-record holder Wayde van Niekerk has announced that he is a married man, posting a photo of himself and his wife, Chesney Campbell, at their wedding. The couple tied the knot at the Bloemfontein Botanical Gardens in front of over 200 guests. Some of the names on the guest list included: Springbok flank Siya Kolisi, Olympic 800m champion Caster Semenya, long jumper Ruswahl Samaai and TV presenter Siv Ngesi. Van Niekerk wore a black suit with a white shirt and waistcoat while Campbell wore a lace detailed, round collared, short-sleeved gown. Her veil fitted in at the centre of her slicked-back hair. In the post he wrote: “Can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you Chesney van Niekerk! So blessed to start this next adventure with the girl of my dreams!” Van Niekerk is an Olympic and world championship gold medallist and holds the world record at 43.03sec.
