Global News published this video item, entitled “Tokyo Olympics: Canada takes home bronze in rowing as COVID-19 worries rise” – below is their description.
Team Canada took home another bronze medal at the Tokyo Summer Olympic Games on Thursday, the first time since 1992 the country won a medal in women pairs’ rowing.
While Canada celebrated the win, COVID-19 worries are beginning to rise after an American pole-vaulter at the Olympic Village tested positive for the novel coronavirus. And outside the Village, cases are surging in Tokyo hitting a record high for the third day in a row.
As Crystal Goomansingh reports, COVID-19 isn’t the only issue athletes are facing with calls for some events to be moved earlier in the day due to high temperatures causing at least one case of heat exhaustion.
