Van Zyl – 47.66 [PB, NR & WL]

Louis Jacobus van Zyl runs an impressive PB, but most importantly a NR with a speedy 47.66. To top it off this was his first outdoor race this season, and what better way to intimidate the other athletes with a national record, and a world leading time.

For more than four years, I have been chasing after this South Africa 400m hurdles record without success. It has come to me as a total surprise in my first race of the season.”

Indeed, it is a complete shock to him, as well as other competitors, as he hasn’t PB’d for 2 years, (47.94) in Monaco 2009, but is a great achievement and we look forward to great runs this summer.
