Nicolas Macrozonaris was born on August 22, 1980 and is a Canadian Olympic athlete in track & field. Nicolas has won the 100 meter national title four times and has also won the 200 meter once. He was inspired to run track and field after watching Donovan Bailey win the 100 meters in the 1996 Atlanta Games. After watching that incredible race, it motivated him to take the sport seriously. A few years later, as a junior, he tied Ben Johnson's Canadian national record in the 50 meter sprint, running a 5,83. The following year, after 4 years of hard work and dedication, 19 year old Nicolas qualified for the 2000 Syndey Olympics' 100 meter event. He ran a stunning time of 10.19, thus joining Canadian legendary sprinters Bruny Surin and Donovan Bailey.

His culminating moment as a sprinter came in 2003 when he ran a 10.03 and knocked off the then world record holder, American Tim Montgomery in Mexico. That made Nicolas the third fastest Canadian in history behind Bruny Surin and Donovan Bailey who both share the national record with a 9.84 clocking.

In 2004 he qualified for the Athens Olympic games and finished 17th in the 100 meter event out of 120 sprinters thus improving his position from his previous Olympic games in Sydney Australia where he finished 45th respectively.

Nicolas has had the honor to represent Canada in many international competitions and has qualified for two Olympic games, one World cup, six World championships, two Commonwealth games, three Francophone games and one Pan American Championships.
