  • Born: 05/27/1992

  • Height: 198cm
  • Weight: 79kg
  • Birthplace: Toronto, ON

Aaron Brown made his Olympic debut at London 2012 where he came within one spot of qualifying for the 200m final, finishing ninth by 0.05 seconds. One of the country’s top sprinters, Brown is the Canadian indoor record holder in the 200m, setting the mark of 20.53 seconds in February 2014. He saw his national outdoor 200m record of 20.16 seconds broken by Andre De Grasse in May 2015. Brown made his senior IAAF World Championship debut in 2013, where he was part of the bronze medal 4x100m relay team. He then helped the relay squad win a second straight world championship bronze in 2015, coming back from great disappointment at the Pan American Games in Toronto where the team appeared to have won gold only to be disqualified for stepping on a line. Brown had previously won 200m bronze at the 2010 IAAF World Junior Championships and 100m silver at the 2009 IAAF World Youth Championships. At the 2011 Pan American Junior Championships, he won 100m bronze and 4x100m relay silver. Brown raced collegiately for the USC Trojans. As a senior, he won 100m bronze and 200m silver at the 2014 NCAA Championships.
