ANDREDEGRASSE4<ANDRE DE GRASSE after running the 100-metre, by Tyler Anderson/Postmedia Network>  He placed third, winning a 100-metre bronze, but the future looks golden for Markham’s ANDRE DE GRASSE, 21. The ‘fastest man in the world’ and gold medal winner USAIN BOLT of Jamaica seemed to agree. “He feels like I’m the next one and I’m just trying to live up to it,” De Grasse said about an exchange he had with Bolt after the race. “I feel like I’m capable of doing it.”  Andre will next compete in the 200-metre and the 4×100-metre relay.
