Andre De Grasse 4th in Paris with his best time of the year

Canadian sprinter and Olympic champion in the 200m, Andre De Grasse, finished just off the podium in this event on Saturday at the Paris Diamond League.

The athlete from Markham, Ontario, stopped the clock in 20 s 38/100, beating his personal best of the season by almost three tenths of a second. His previous benchmark time was 20.67s, recorded on April 29 in Jacksonville, Florida.

Two weeks later, De Grasse had covered the distance in 20.15s with a favorable wind at the start of the Diamond League season.

Despite these more than commendable efforts, De Grasse was beaten by South African Luxolo Adams (19.82 s), Dominican Alexander Ogondo (20.03 s) and Frenchman Mouhamadou Fall (20.26 s).

At the Tokyo Games, De Grasse became the first Canadian to win the Olympic 200m since 1928. He set the national record in 19.62s.″>Source
