Wayde Van Niekerk embodies ambition, promise and potential.
Wayde raced into our hearts with his performance in the 400 metre men’s final at the Rio 2016 Olympics. He broke the 17-year-old record held by American legend, Michael Johnson, with a new time of 43.03 seconds. At only 24, he is also a four-time South African champion in the 400m event.
Discovery Vitality Ambassadors play an important role as leaders across communities, and in wider society. Wayde is an icon for people of all ages and represents the positivity of a #DiscoveryDreamer.
