Andre De Grasse’s Instagram is all business
Andre De Grasse, the 21-year-old sprinter from Markham, has thrilled the entire country with his wins in Rio: bronze in the men’s 100-metre dash, and, last night, a silver in the 200-metre. (His final event, the men’s 4×100-metre relay, is tonight.) Beyond Canada, his friendly rivalry with Usain Bolt has become an internet obsession. Throughout all of this, De Grasse has been amassing Instagram followers. Here are some highlights from his expertly curated feed.
