2017 Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome Track Classic

Date: June 28, 2017

Gates Open: 5:30pm

Location: Percy Perry Stadium, Coquitlam, BC

On June 28, Canada’s Olympic dynamic medal-winning sprinter, Andre de Grasse, will be returning to compete at The Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome International Track Classic.

Andre De Grasse used last year’s Jerome meet as a tune-up for the Rio Summer Olympics where he engaged in some thrilling matchups with multiple-time gold medalist Usain Bolt of Jamaica. De Grasse won a silver medal in the 200-metres and bronze in both the 100 and 400-metre relays in Rio. 

The Harry Jerome International Track Classic is Canada's longest running track and field event. In its 33-year history, world and Olympic champions, world record holders, Canadian stars and young hopefuls have thrilled spectators, achieved personal bests and, thanks to the vision and dedication of the Achilles International Track and Field Society, continued in their quest to become Faster, Higher and Stronger.

The Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome Track Classic is hosted by the Achilles International Track & Field Society, a non-profit society registered in British Columbia. Net proceeds from this event support track and field competition in BC.
