Watson clears her first hurdle in Tokyo

Andre De Grasse served notice that he is on a mission, qualifying with the fastest time of the men’s 100-metre heats, winning his preliminary heat with a season’s best time of 9.91 seconds.
 
“I feel good – season’s best. I’m really looking forward to tomorrow night. I’m ready to go,” said De Grasse. “I feel like people put pressure on me, but I enjoy it. I have fun with it. It makes me feel better that I’m one of the guys that can bring a medal home to Canada. I’m just enjoying the moment. It’s my second Olympic Games and I’m just grateful and blessed to be here.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“I had a great start and I was up there. I didn’t finish as great as I would like to but, at the end of the day, I crossed the line healthy. I had the support of Canada behind me, as well as my angels – my mom and Daundre Barnaby – and I’m just happy to have made it to this point.”
– Khamica Bingham
