So Far All Of Canada’s Olympic Medal Winners Are Women

Even more reason to be proud to be Canadian

As of the morning of August 10, the five Canadian medal winners at the Olympic games in Rio are all women!

Making Canada proud are:

Swimmer Penny Oleksiak, taking silver in the 100m butterfly.

Kylie Masse who nabbed a bronze in the 100m Backstroke.

The 4x100m freestyle relay team of Sandrine Mainville, Chantal Van Landeghem, Taylor Ruck and Penny Oleksak, brought in Bronze.

Synchronised 10m divers Meaghan Benfeito and Roseline Filion, earned themselves a bronze

The Women’s Rugby team are taking home bronze, being the first Canadian team (for either men or women) to win a medal for the sport.

When it comes to the Olympics, the summer series isn’t necessarily Canada’s strong suit. We’ve just been squeezed out of the top 10 nations in medal standings by the UK but that might change. But either way, go Canada!
