Andre De Grasse blazed onto the track scene in 2015 finishing the season as a 2-time NCAA Champion, 2-time Pan American Games Champion and a 2-time Bonze medalist at the World Championships held in Beijing, China. De Grasse is off to an impressive start considering his short history with the sport.
Andre attended a track meet by chance his senior year of high school. He decided to enter the 100m just to see how fast he was. He ran in basketball shorts and shoes and ran 10.9 seconds. At that meet he was discovered by respected coach and former Canadian sprinter, Tony Sharpe, and the rest is history. At just 20 years old, Andre became one of the youngest medalists ever in track and field. He is on his way to becoming one of the greats in the most competitive events on the track. Representing Canada, De Grasse is setting his sights on the 2016 Olympic games in Rio and beyond.
