  • Greatest Games for 🇨🇦 #athletics in modern times (best since 1932). Congratulations to the athletes that made it all happen.
  • ❤️ What a run by the women's 4x400m in the #Olympic final. ・・・
Last night we placed 4th in the 4x400, so close to a medal. We fought hard, so proud of these girls. WE ARE OLYMPIC FINALISTS. Thank you everyone for the support ❤️🇨🇦 #canadianstrong #rio2016 #teamcanada
  • 4x100m🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
  • This is the exact moment the relay team looked up at the board and realized they won Olympic Bronze. New Canadian Record of 37.64. 6th 🏅for the 🇨🇦 athletics team with more finals to come. Oh yeah and @de6rasse has 3 Olympic medals now, at 21-years old.
  • Melissa Bishop will race in the 800m final tomorrow night in Rio. 🇨🇦's best finish at the #Olympics in the women's 800m belongs to Jenny Thompson who was 4th in 1928. #yabish #rio2016
  • 2nd medal tonight! Andre De Grasse become 1st 🇨🇦 sprinter since Percy Williams in 1928 to win medals in both the 100m & 200m at the same Olympic Games. Absolutely 🔥🔥🔥🔥.
  • Damian Warner has won Olympic Bronze in the Decathlon!!!
  • The men's 4x100m qualifies for #Olympics final with a 🔥🔥🔥37.89, 2nd fastest all-time behind the 🇨🇦 record of 37.69 from Atlanta Games. We could see something special in tomorrow's final.
  • It's not about falling down, it's about getting right back up.
  • Caption this photo.
Oh yeah and by the way Andre De Grasse just casually set a new 🇨🇦 200m record of 19.80 and is into the final.
  • Melissa Bishop recorded the fastest time this morning in advancing to the 800m semis. #yabish #rio2016 #olympics #teamcanada
  • Three of the four guys from the 1996 🇨🇦 Olympic champion 4x100m relay squad back on the track together.
  • That Olympic Champion feeling.  What an amazing shot capturing the raw excitement and emotions flooding over Derek Drouin after clearing 2.38m.
