(RIO de JANEIRO, BRAZIL) – Canada added a bronze medal yesterday from the 4 x 200m Freestyle swimming relay team of Katerine Savard, of Pont-Rouge, QC, Taylor Ruck, of Kelowna, BC, Toronto’s Brittany MacLean, and anchor Penny Oleksiak, also of Toronto.

The addition brings Canada’s total to 6.

Archery Crispin Duenas Individual Round of 32 W 6-5

Archery Crispin Duenas Individual Round of 16 L 3-7

“I shot the best I could’ve,” Duenas said. “I’ve had two Olympics before and I know that I didn’t perform there as good as I did here, both in the rankings and with how I was shooting. My mental game was good, my physical game was good. I was putting arrows in the middle when I needed to, but Zach [Garrett] just had more.”

Basketball Canada Team Preliminary Round, Group B V 68-58

Beach Volleyball Josh Binstock / Sam Schachter Team Preliminary Round, Pool A L 1-2

“I’m proud to have gotten [to the Olympics], but it’s not what we wanted,” said Schachter. “We wanted more here. So, I’m still a little disappointed, but we’ll go home, learn from our lessons and start training again and be here next Olympics.”
