Fewer than three months removed from his third consecutive NEC Outdoor MVP award, Brendon Rodney was wearing his LIU uniform one lane over from Usain Bolt.

The two were warming up for the Olympic Games later this summer in Rio.

After running sub-20 to win the Canadian 200m title, Rodney competed against eight other world-class sprinters at the IAAF Diamond League Muller Anniversary Games in London.

Bolt won the race in 19.89 with Rodney finishing in sixth.

The three-time NEC Outdoor MVP clocked in at 20.37 and tweeted out the following message, “Today was a great test against an amazing field thankful for the experience now time to get ready for Rio @TeamCanada.”

Later that evening, the grateful NEC record holder added to his Twitter timeline by tweeting, “Good or bad u still gotta learn and today was a learning experience.”
