  • ❤️ 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 🔥🔥🔥🔥.
