    Default Andre De Grasse: Usain Bolt take notice

    In the place dubbed Track Town USA, it was a Canadian who was about to announce himself to the sprinting world.

    On a Friday in June, at the NCAA track and field championships in Eugene, Ore., Andre De Grasse, a 20-year-old sprinter from Markham, Ont., representing the University of Southern California was running in the 100- and 200-metre finals.

    He won the 100 in a time of 9.75 seconds. For an encore later that evening, he won the 200 in 19.58 seconds. With a tail wind measured over the legal limit, neither time counted for official records. Had they, De Grasse would have logged one of the three fastest 100-metre sprints of the year. Canada would also have a new national record holder, usurping Donovan Bailey and Bruny Surin and their mark of 9.84 seconds.

    Very cool!

    He seems like he's got a fairly unique running style as well, with his right arm really pumping compared to the other guys.

    Wish I had tix to the Pan-Am finals! Slacked on the BMX day too, and that's just in my backyard at Centennial Park.

    This awesome. Track events are my favorite Summer Olympic events. Remember how much fun it was when Donovan Bailey was on top of the world?

    IAAF World Championships are in Aug. in China. Bolt, Gatlin, and De Grasse will hopefully be there for the sprints.
