Nyawose allegedly knocked down Stander, 25, while he was cycling in Shelley Beach, on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast, on January 3 last year.

The culpable homicide charge was provisionally dropped against him in July, pending a decision by the director of public prosecutions.

The charge, which is reckless or negligent driving in the alternative, was reinstated soon afterwards.

Stander was fifth in the men's cross-country race at the 2012 London Olympics. Four years earlier, at the Beijing Games, he finished 15th in the cross-country event.

Nyawose is out on a warning. - Sapa
