🏊‍♀️Swimming: Penny Oleksiak became the most decorated Olympian in Canadian history on Saturday night, winning her seventh-career Olympic medal — a bronze — in the women’s 4x100m medley relay. 

  • With a silver and two bronze to add to her four medals from Rio 2016, Oleksiak’s Tokyo 2020 Games are over...but don’t worry, she’ll be back for Paris 2024

🏃‍♀️Track & Field: Andre de Grasse won bronze in the men’s 100m — aka the fastest man in the world race — to finally put Canadian men on the medal board. de Grasse will be back in action tonight at 10:05 p.m. ET to qualify for the 200m, which he won silver for in Rio 2016.

🏐Volleyball: Both Canadian women’s beach volleyball teams have advanced to tomorrow’s quarter-finals. Heather Bansley and Brandie Wilkerson will play Latvia at 8 a.m. ET, while the still-undefeated duo of Melissa Humana-Paredes and Sarah Pavan play Australia at 9 a.m. ET. A win for both (fingers crossed) means they’ll face each other in the semis.

🏀Basketball: After going 1-2 in group play, Canada’s women’s basketball team is out of the Olympics. A disappointing showing for the fourth-ranked team in the world.
