Wayde van Niekerk of South Africa continued his recent comeback by winning the men’s 400m at the Gala dei Castelli in Bellinzona, Switzerland, on Monday night.

Van Niekerk, 30, did not qualify for the Commonwealth Games in July and August, but has made a comeback in recent weeks.

On Monday night, he won in 44.38 seconds, a hundredth of a second faster than his previous best time of the season.

According to the Team SA website, it was the world’s tenth fastest time in 2022. Van Niekerk finished ahead of Grenada’s Kirani James, who clocked 44.38, and South Africa’s Zakhiti Nene, who finished third in 44.38.


Van Niekerk holds the world record of 43.03 seconds, which he set to win gold at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

South African Akani Simbine finished fifth in the men’s 100m on Monday in 10.21 seconds. Brandon Carnes of the United States won in 10.04.
