Before 2016 comes to a close, there is at least one more accolade for Andre De Grasse.

The triple Olympic medallist sprinter has been voted by you, the fans, as Air Canada Athlete of the Year.

De Grasse, the first Canadian to ever stand on an Olympic podium in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay finished ahead of two Rio 2016 gold medallists in the online vote, high jumper Derek Drouin and trampolinist Rosie MacLennan.

Earlier this month, De Grasse received the IAAF Male Rising Star Award for his performances in Rio.

Fans were able to make their selection between the three elite athletes for the chance to win two tickets to anywhere in North America that Air Canada flies.

De Grasse is the fifth winner of the Air Canada Athlete of the Year, following soccer star Christine Sinclair in 2012, short track speed skater Charles Hamelin in 2013, moguls skier Alex Bilodeau in 2014 and kayaker Mark de Jonge last year.
