    De Grasse plans for Gold Coast
    TORONTO (CAN): Big plans for Olympic medalist Andre De Grasse for the Commonwealth Games next April. As news.com.au informs that while he’s yet to decide whether he’ll do the sprint double or focus on either the 100m or 200m, De Grasse is determined to get redemption after a disappointing Commonwealth Games debut in Glasgow in 2014. “The last Commonwealth Games I didn’t really do well,” he recalls. “So for me it’s a great opportunity to come back to my second Commonwealth Games and try to redeem myself. At Glasgow I didn’t make it out of the semi-finals. While the whole thing was a great experience, I didn’t do well on the track and I’m determined to change that on the Gold Coast.” He missed the World Championships in London last summer due to an injury.
