women during the annual Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome International Track Classic

Negotiations are under way with
Andre de Grasse, to return to compete with his Canadian
colours at the Team Sprint Challenge during the Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome
International Track Classic.
Andre De Grasse

Days before the showdown with Usain Bolt, his plans were grounded with a major
hamstring injury to end the 2017 season. De Grasse won a silver medal in the
200-metres and bronze in both the 100 and 400-metre relays at the Rio Olympic
Games in 2016.
