The next generation of sprinters is knocking on the door of our current members of
Canada’s 4x100m Rio Olympics bronze medalists. Our first line sprinters will not be
displaced anytime soon but this group of young speedsters will have their chance at
this year’s FISU World Student Games and Francophone Games. Our first team is
now at a training camp in Gainesville, Florida preparing for the World Relays
Championships in the Bahamas next month.

Clearly on the alternate list for our Canadian 4x100m is Bolade Ajomale of Richmond Hills, ON who already leads our 2017 ranking in the 100m and 200m with his early season marks of 10.29 and 20.87. His personal best of 10.15 and his role in the semi-finals of the Olympics 4x100m relay, makes him a likely selection for the IAAF World Championships in London. Bolade is a sophomore at the Academy of Art in San Francisco and started his career with the Flying Angels Club in Toronto
Drelan Bramwell and Duan Asemota began their track passion with coach, Tony Sharpe at the Speed Academy in Toronto. Drelan from Sarnia, ON is now a junior at Arizona State University after attending College of Sequoias in California. He recently dropped his personal best over a second when he recorded 46.48 in the 400m.
Duan Asemota of Ajax, ON is a junior at the Ohio State University after attending Coffeeville Community College in Kansas. This major in electrical engineering opened the season with 10.61 and has personal bests of 10.45 and 21.46
