Carson Bradley knows numbers.
After all, he’s a math major.
He also has a need for speed, which he regularly demonstrates as one of Canada’s top up-and-coming sprinters.
A freshman at the University of Toronto, the 2019 McMath secondary grad recently tore up the track at the Canadian U Sports Track and Field Championships in Edmonton. Running the third leg for the Varsity Blues, he helped the men’s 4x400 metre relay team to silver medals in the final race.
Teaming with Emmett Bravakis, Alexander Bimm and Jack Berkshire, Bradley helped the Blues clock a second-place time of 3:14.79, just over two seconds shy of the 3:12.71 posted by the first-place Guelph Gryphons.
Twice Richmond high school male athlete of the year, Bradley was named to Team BC in both 2016 and 2018, placing third in the 400 metres at the 2018 Legion national championships.
