anyone who has suffered more bad luck in athletics than Wayde van Niekerk.

I knew someone who had a pigeon that had really terrible luck.

Wayde had the world at his feet....he could have ruled the 400 for years. The first mistake was trying to run the 200, to do a Michael Johnson. He simply isn't explosive enough for the 200. Then he does a Rory McIlroy.

Beautiful runner...but will he ever get back to his potential.

Are you aware of the following?

"Two months after the 2017 Worlds, he tore a meniscus and an ACL in a celebrity tag rugby match"

That's the Rory McIlroy reference.....Rory did himself in playing in a pick up soccer game. And he has never been the same since. Ernie got the same injury as Wayde sailing a small boat and was never quite as fluid. Schumacher is a vegetable as a result of a skiing accident.

It must be tempting if you're a young bloke to enjoy the things your mates do.....but if you're a finely tuned athlete, it's a risk.

All that talent and potential isn't worth it if it become a prison...life is meant to be lived...and it's not like a game of touchies is risky behavior....hard luck though.
