The South African has not competed on the international circuit since suffering a knee injury while participating in a celebrity rugby match in October 20178. He got married the same weekend.

In his second local appearance, Van Niekerk won the 200m in 20.31 and 100m in 10.10. He ran a hand-time 10.20 a week ago.

“Was good pushing the body today,” he tweeted.
