Andre De Grasse made history at Rio 2016 when he became the first Canadian athlete to win Olympic medals in all three sprint events. First came a bronze in the 100m in a personal best time of 9.91 seconds, making him Canada’s first Olympic medallist in the event since Donovan Bailey at Atlanta 1996. That was followed by a silver medal in the 200m, making him the first Canadian to reach the Olympic podium in that event since Percy Williams at Amsterdam 1928. De Grasse had set a national record time of 19.80 seconds when he challenged Jamaican star Usain Bolt in the semifinals. He closed his Olympic debut by anchoring the 4x100m relay to bronze in a national record time of 37.64 seconds, breaking the 20-year-old mark held by the gold medal squad from Atlanta 1996.
