Thread: Andre DeGrasse to Altis

  1. #1

    Andre DeGrasse to Altis

    Andre DeGrasse joins the Altis group in Phoenix (Pfaff, Stuart McMillan). An interesting development, I thought DeGrasse would continue to train with Caryl Gilbert at USC since it worked so well last year. Not sure what to make of this, I like Pfaff and the Altis group but this seems risky in an Olympic year, especially after a breakout season.

    I agree, why switch going into an Olympic year? Maybe this is being mandated by Puma.

    Degrasse explains the reason for the move in the podcast. He expressed his gratitude for his experience at USC yet stated as a professional he felt it time to move on. He had a visit to Altis and really liked it so that prompted his move.

    Agree with Pioneer.
    Was it really good time to move?
    Best time to move for who?
    Caryl Gilbert or Andre DeGrasse? Certainly best for Altis.

    Andre's been on a Sharp(e) rise for three years even with two Coaching switches already and now add Pfaff and McMillan as well as the rest of the TEAM. Wow!
    He already Conquered the College scene.
    It's not like he is going to an asst. after working with Hart lol
    or Dix switching often for whatever reason.
    Speaking of Dix..didn't he show up a little over weight and compete at the Trials last year?
    He went into the Final at the Trials back in 12 after being heavily bandaged up.

    Dix ain't pulling out for shit lmao

    I'd really love to see DeGrasse have a long career, but I have a strange feeling his career may be as short as the other Andre (Cason).

    I don't know, it's just a feeling I have. Nothing to do with his recent change of coach. Hope my feeling is wrong.

    I see dix often. He will show up at local meets and run. He ran last summer at this one meet. Ran the prelim and backed out of the final in the 100. That final Adam harris dropped a 9.9. lol I doubt dix wanted any of that
