We’re not sure life can get any better for Olympic medallist Wayde Van Niekerk, after winning a handful of medals and world record titles this year, he can now add the title of husband to the list after a marrying his longtime love, Chesney Campbell, this past weekend. The 400m Gold Olympian made the announcement on all his social media accounts on Sunday morning. Wade posted a black-and-white photograph of him and his new bride, describing her as “the girl of [his] dreams”. The couple tied the knot at the Bloemfontein Botanical Gardens in front of over 200 guests, including Springbok flank Siya Kolisi, Olympic 800m champion Caster Semenya, long jumper Ruswahl Samaai and TV presenter Siv Ngesi.

To celebrate the newlywed’s newfound happiness, we’ve rounded up our favourite moments of the two as shown by Wade himself on his social media.
