    Sprint fans: the men's and women's 100m semis and finals are this evening, and the 200m is on Saturday and Sunday. Andre DeGrasse is slated to run both. It will be interesting to see if he'll dial it up for this meet.

    Update: DeGrasse jogs 10.13 (+1.2) in 2nd heat of semis. Great FREE high def streaming through Athletics Canada (take that Trackcamp2017, wherever you may be...).

    The final slated for a little over an hour from now. He has mentioned that he hopes to break the Canadian record today (9.84). Conditions are warm and humid with a nice legal breeze. We shall see!

                    bad news for Damian Warner?

                    <<Johnathan Cabral won the event in 13.61 over local Ottawa native Sekou Kaba and Olympic bronze medallist Damian Warner. The 2016 Rio Olympic finalist required medical assistance after going down hard following the last hurdle and was seen grabbing his hamstring. >>

                        hmmmm.... reading the rest of the story it also says

                        <<Cabral was not able to attend the medal ceremony shortly after the conclusion of the event. The extent of his injury is unknown. Check out these Canadian Running trackside photos from the Saturday evening sprint hurdles.>>

                        so maybe Warner is fine?

                          It was Cabral who got injured. He looked like he injured his hamstring landing on the 8 hurdle and some how managed to get over the last 2 hurdles and finished the last couple strides of the race hoping on one leg. He went down after the finish line and looked to be in a lot of pain. I don't know how he managed to get through that and still win.

                              DeGrasse won the 200m in 19.96 with a 2.7m tail wind.

                              When will Andre DeGrasse finally run a fast time?
