BOTSWANA'S ISAAC MAKWALA SETS UP SHOWDOWN WITH WORLD CHAMPION SOUTH AFRICAN WAYNE VAN NIEKERK AFTER BEATING ILLNESS. Botswana's Isaac Makwala in action at the IAAF World Athletics Championships in London during the 2017 World Athletics Championships in London on August 9, 2017. Botswana's Isaac Makwala joined South African favourite Wayde van Niekerk in the World Championships 200m final - having earlier qualified for the semis with a solo run at London Stadium. Makwala missed Monday's heats while barred from competing as officials dealt with a norovirus outbreak. He came out of quarantine at 14:00 BST on Wednesday and ran a time of 20.20 seconds in an individual time trial. Makwala, 30, then qualified in second place from the first semi-final.
