The men’s 100 metre semifinals take place on Sunday night with Canada’s hopes entirely on the 21-year-old shoulders of Andre De Grasse.

Should he finish top two in his heat, De Grasse will head straight to the final taking place later in the evening at his very first Olympic Games.

In the semifinal (8:07 ET), De Grasse will have a target. He simply has to stay with arguably the world’s most famous athlete and certainly the fastest person who has ever lived, Usain Bolt.

DeGrasse will stand at lane five of heat two to start, while Bolt will be next to him in six. This is not the first time the two have been in the same heat. At Beijing 2015 – De Grasse’s first world championships – the two men qualified for the final together tied at 9.99 seconds each. Also in that semifinal heat in Beijing stood Trayvon Bromell of the United States. He’ll also be present in De Grasse’s heat at Rio 2016. In Beijing, all three men made the Olympic podium with Bolt winning the world title in 9.79, while De Grasse and Bromell shared third place with 9.92 each.
