IAAF World Championships Beijing, China

Dr. Merepeza travelled to Beijing for the Athletics World Championships as a personal chiropractor with talented Canadian sprinter Andre De Grasse. It was great to be back in Beijing seven years since 2008 Olympics. It was an exciting event as Andre came as NCAA champion in 100m and 200m with some phenomenal times 9.75 and 19.58 which he did in a fashion that has never been done before, only 45 minutes apart between both races.

He got bronze with 9.92 in 100m and it was a fantastic result for Andre! He put Canada on the sprint map again!
