Bolt and DeGrasse Bromance "DeBolt"



Usain Bolt completed a historic three-peat, winning gold in the 100-metre final Sunday in Rio. Canada's Andre De Grasse captured bronze.
Bolt won the race in 9.81 seconds, followed by American Justin Gatlin at 9.89 and De Grasse at a personal-best 9.91.

Update August 17

Bolt and Degrasse advance to 200m finals. America's Justin Gatlin fails to qualify.

Bolt: 19.78, DeGrasse 19.80, Merritt 19.94

Andre DeGrasse and Usain Bolt joke as they cross the finish line in the 200m semi.

The 200m final is tomorrow evening

Shore to Shore Race 2016!

by Elizabeth Priebe

Wiarton Willy

He lives about 500m from the race finish line. He's looking very robust! He also mentioned that he is predicting a very long and snowy winter in 2017 that will delight cross-country skiers near and far.



"For about a month this summer, I was sampling groundwater along the Niagara Escarpment. Being away from home was tough, but working with some keen young people made it lots of fun despite my homesickness. Going into our field season, none of my summer students were runners. I knew that I needed to get them interested in running if I was to keep my training up while away from my normal routine. One student, Sophie, really got into it and even let me convince her to run the Shore to Shore race in Wiarton on the August long weekend. This was the 64th anniversary of the race, and their experience running it is demonstrated in how well it was organized. The 13km race starts in Oliphant beach on Lake Huron and ends in Wiarton, at the Georgian Bay shore. The best part of the race, by far, was the finish line, which is a straight 500m shot downhill that's lined with cheering spectators. I'd recommend this race to anyone in the area on the August long weekend! Sophie and I had a blast.
