Andre De GRASSE - Canada - 2015 World Championship & 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

Andre De Grasse salutes after finishing the men's 100 metres final. It wasn't V for Victory

(Mr Bolt was running) but he did share the bronze medal with Trayvon Bromell.

The 9.92 was Andre's fastest ever 100 so that was a victory of sorts.
