Canada won its first ever medal in Olympic softball with the women’s team claiming bronze after a 3-2 win over Mexico. It’s the first ever Olympic medal for Canada in the sport, which was dropped from the Olympics after the 2008 Games in Beijing. The sport isn’t set to return for future Olympics, making this Canada’s last shot for the podium.
Kylie Masse won Canada’s latest swimming medal, taking silver in the women’s 100-metre backstroke. The LaSalle, Ont., native posted a time of 57.72 seconds in the event final Tuesday, just a fraction of a second behind Australian Kaylee McKeown, who took the gold. Regan Smith of the United States took the bronze.
And Catherine Pinard-Beauchemin won a bronze medal in judo in the women’s under-63kg category, defeating Venezuela’s Anriquelis Barrios after more than three minutes of sudden death overtime.
