The matter was postponed to February 27, KwaZulu-Natal National Prosecuting Authority spokeswoman Natasha Ramkisson said.
“The defence requested the postponement for reasons beyond their control. The request was not opposed by the State.”
Njabulo Nyawose allegedly knocked down Stander, 25, while he was cycling in Shelley Beach, on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast, on January 3.
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.
