On the final day of the swimming competition in Tokyo 2020, coach Rick Bishop says he could not be more proud of Hong Kong’s Siobhan Haughey and Canada’s Maggie MacNeil, who he has coached for six and three years respectively. Haughey took home two silver medals, becoming Hong Kong’s most decorated Olympian, while MacNeil claimed a gold, silver and bronze medal.
