De Grasse demonstrated he is well and truly back on the track in Ostrava today

Sprinter Andre De Grasse had another excellent result in the 200m today, blasting past Christian Coleman of the US to win the 200m in a season’s best 19.91 at the Ostrava Golden Spike meet in the Czech Republic. According to FloTrack, it’s the first time De Grasse has run a wind-legal sub-20 since the 2016 Olympics. It’s also the fifth best time in the world so far this year.
