Wade Van Niekerk Just broke 300m World Record set by Michael Johnson

Wade Van Niekerk just broke the 300m world record at Golden Spike meet in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

The South African smashed the 17-year-old record with a time of 30.81. Michael Johnson set the 30.85 record in 2000 in Pretoria, a city in the northern part of Gauteng Province, South Africa. This leaves Usain Bolt as the third fastest athlete to run over that distance. He recorded a time of 30.97 in May 2010 at said Golden Spike meet in Ostrava.
