Andre DE GRASSE 

On the race against winner Usain BOLT (JAM) and silver medallist Justin GATLIN (USA):

“Racing the fastest man in the world, ever, and (Justin) GATLIN, these guys are spectacular.”

“I’m speechless. They’re probably jumping up and down screaming back home in Canada.”

There is a fresh and unique energy that starting artists give out that can only be captured by a photographer who is equally passionate about music journalism and pictures.
