Brandon Letts


  • Was a finalist in the 100m at the 2023 Canadian Championships

  • Because of multiple injuries, he missed two full years of competition as he was finishing high school, which meant no university scholarship offers; instead of attending college he spent 2016 focused on giving everything he had to training and set his 100m PB, giving him the boost he needed to keep going
