Bolt and Blake’s reaction to Wayde van Niekerk breaking the 400m WR is still the best sports video of 2016 [video]

We feel you, guys.


Yep, it’s that time of the year where everyone is counting down the best things about 2016.

Springboks aside, it’s been a cracker of a year on the sports field for South Africa. One of the best moments of the year was, without a doubt, Wayde van Niekerk smashing the 400m World Record from THE OUTSIDE LANE at the Rio Olympics.

Van Niekerk became the first South African to win a medal in the event since the country’s readmission. To do what he did  while running blind was something quite extraordinary.

If you got up to watch, you probably didn’t sleep again for days because HOLY SHIT ADRENALIN.

Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake’s reaction was all of us at fokkof o’clock in the morning.
