“We just played steady.That’s a very physical team that likes to serve really tough,” Schalk said. “Going in, we knew we had to deal with it, we knew we had to control the ball and control the tempo. We were just able to grind them down and keep pushing. I’m really proud of our fight today.”

Diving Meaghan Benfeito / Roseline Filion 10m Synchro Final BRONZE

“It was crazy. We knew we needed a really a good dive on the last one to have a chance at the podium,” Filion said. “We went up there really calm, looked at each other and told each other, ‘We got this’, and we ended up with a great last dive.”

“The feeling was amazing,” said Benfeito. “We’ve worked tirelessly since London to get this medal. We missed on our fourth dive but we got it back on the fifth. To see that three flash across the board was amazing.”

“I always struggle against Japanese opponents. It was already a difficult match-up for me from the start,” said Valois-Fortier. “I think one thing I didn’t do so well is after the quarterfinals I had a hard time setting my mind into going into repechage. I really believed I would be going into the semis and final today.”
