Canada won the gold medal in the 4x100m relay at the World Athletics Championships

Eugene, Oregon — The Canadian Men’s 4x100m Relay Team has won the gold medal at the World Championships in Athletics.

Six-time Olympic medalist Andre De Grasse led the team of Aaron Brown, Jerome Blake and Brendon Rodney to victory on Saturday in 37.48 seconds. This is the fastest in the world this season.

Gold was the third medal in the Canadian World Championships.

The Americans won the silver medal at 37.55 and the UK finished in 3rd place (37.83).

This victory was a great finish for De Grasse, who was infected with COVID-19 a month ago and was unable to compete in the 100-meter final. He also withdrew from the 200 meters.

It also comes after some near misses by the Canadian team. De Grasse led Canadians to a silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics last summer and won a bronze medal in Rio in 2016. He also won the bronze medal in the world held in Beijing in 2015. Canada did not play the final in the final world of 2019 in Doha.

Canada, led by Donovan Bailey, won a 4×100 gold medal at the 1995 and 1997 World Championships. The team included Glenroy Gilbert, who is now the head coach of Athletics Canada.
