Athletics[edit]

André François competed for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines as its first ever competitor in the Olympic men's 200 meters race. He was born in July 1964, and was 24 years old at the time he competed at the Seoul games of 1988. François had not previously competed at any Olympic games, and had not competed at any games afterwards.[1] The qualification round of François' event took place on September 26, with the Vincentian competing in the sixth heat against seven other athletes. He finished the race in 21.88 seconds, placing seventh in the heat. François scored ahead of Ismail Asif of the Maldives (23.17 seconds) and behind Abdullah Al-Khalidi of Oman (21.82 seconds) in a heat led by Kenya's Kennedy Ondiek (20.79 seconds) and Troy Douglas of Bermuda (20.91 seconds). Overall, François tied Aouf Abdul Rahman Youssef of Iraq for 50th place out of the 71 athletes who finished the event and ranked. He did not advance to later rounds.[2]
