Canada won 22 medals at the Rio Olympics to finish 10th in the overall medal standings.
Here is a look back at Canada’s medal performances:
ON THE BOARD — Canada won its first medal of the Games as the women’s 4×100 relay swim team took bronze. Canada was in third for most of the race, and 16-year-old Penny Oleksiak helped hold off the Netherlands’ foursome with a strong anchor leg. Oleksiak combined with Sandrine Mainville, Chantal Van Landeghem and Taylor Ruck to finish in a time of three minutes 32.89 seconds. Oleksiak was far from done at the Games, having qualified for the 100-metre butterfly final.
PENNY’S PODIUM — For the second day in a row, Oleksiak stood on the podium at Rio de Janeiro’s Olympic Aquatics Stadium, rocketing to the silver medal in the 100-metre butterfly. She also broke her own world junior record and set a new Canadian standard by finishing in 56.46 seconds.
MASSE EFFECT — The rise of Canada’s women’s swimming team continued as Kylie Masse, from La Salle, Ont., took the bronze medal in the women’s 100-metre backstroke. Canada entered the Rio Olympics without a women’s swimming medal since 1996. But Masse gave Canada it’s third in as many days.
BANG THE SCRUM — Canada’s women’s rugby sevens team made history by winning the event’s first-ever Olympic medal. Canada edged Britain 33-10 after losing to top-ranked Australia in the semifinals. It became Canada’s second medal in a team sport in as many Games after the women’s soccer team captured bronze four years ago in London.
BACK-TO-BACK BRONZE — Divers Roseline Filion and Meaghan Benfeito of Laval, Que., captured their second straight bronze medal in the women’s 10-metre synchronized event. They appeared headed for disappointment as they were fifth heading into the final dive. But a missed attempt by the North Koreans opened the door the podium for the duo, who nailed their last dive.
SHINY PENNY — Oleksiak claimed her third medal of the Games, a bronze in the women’s 4×200-metre freestyle relay, to set herself up for a chance to break the record for most medals by a Canadian swimmer at a single Games the following night.
GOLDEN GIRL — Oleksiak breaks the record as she collects Canada’s first gold with a thrilling performance in the women’s 100-metre freestyle. She was well back going into the final 50 metres but showed her impressive finishing kick to tie American Simone Manuel in an Olympic-record time of 52.70 seconds.
ROSIE BOUNCES BACK — Rosie MacLennan proved she had fully recovered from the concussion that interrupted her training last year, winning her second straight gold medal in women’s trampoline. The King City, Ont., native became the first Canadian summer athlete to ever defend an Olympic title in an individual event. It’s been done by two winter athletes — speedkskater Catriona Le May Doan and freestyle skier Alex Bilodeau.
RELENTLESS ROWERS — Victoria’s Lindsay Jennerich and Patricia Obee won a silver medal in the women’s lightweight double sculls, four years after the devastation of finishing seventh London. Jennerich has the word “relentless” tattooed on her wrist, a mantra for the two women in the lead-up to Rio.
POOL PARTY — Hilary Caldwell of White Rock, B.C., gave Canada its sixth swimming gold of the Games with a bronze in the women’s 200-metre backstroke. Canadian swimmers won twice as many swimming medals as they did at the 2012 London Games.
PURSUIT POWER — Canada defeated New Zealand en route to a bronze medal in the women’s track cycling team pursuit. Montreal’s Kirsti Lay, Calgary’s Allison Beveridge, Georgia Simmerling of West Vancouver, B.C., and Jasmin Glaesser of Vancouver had been hoping to improve on the bronze Canada won in London four years ago.
BOUNCES BACK FOR BRONZE — Canada’s Brianne Theisen-Eaton roared back to win bronze in the women’s heptathlon. The two-time world silver medallist from Humboldt, Sask., was in sixth place after a rocky Day 1 but solid long jump and javelin events allowed her to climb up to third spot going into the final event, the 800 metres. A third-place finish in the race allowed her to maintain her podium position.
DE BRONZE — Canada’s Andre De Grasse won the bronze medal in the men’s 100 metres, giving Canada its first medal in the marquee event since 1996. De Grasse finished in a personal-best time of 9.91 seconds. He also became the first Canadian male athlete to win a medal in Rio. Canada’s first 12 medals were won by women.
SETTING THE BAR — Canada’s Derek Drouin won the gold medal in the men’s high jump, tying a personal best by clearing two metres 38 centimetres. Drouin didn’t miss a single attempt en route to winning the Olympic title. The Corunna, Ont., added the gold to the bronze he won at the London Games in 2012.
WHAT A DEBUT — De Grasse continued his impressive Olympic debut by winning the silver medal in the men’s 200-metre final. The 21-year-old finished in 20.02 seconds, just behind Jamaica’s Usain Bolt, who took gold for the third consecutive Olympics in 19.78.
DAMIAN’S DECATHLON — Damian Warner of London, Ont., captured bronze in the decathlon. The world silver medallist finished the 10-discipline competition with 8,666 points. He was in tough against American world record-holder and defending champion Ashton Eaton, who won gold with 8,893 points.
GOLDEN HAUL — Ottawa’s Erica Wiebe won Canada’s fourth gold medal in Rio, giving the country its highest gold tally since the 1992 Barcelona Games. With the 75-kilogram victory, Wiebe follows in the footsteps of two-time Olympic medallist Carol Huynh, the winner of Canada’s first-ever gold in women’s wrestling in Beijing eight years ago, and Tonya Verbeek, who finished on the podium at three separate Games.
DOUBLE BRONZE — Benfeito won her second bronze medal of the Games, finishing third in the women’s 10-metre platform event. The 27-year-old from Laval, Que., finished with an overall score of 389.20. It was Benfeito’s first individual medal in Rio after winning bronze with Filion in the 10-metre synchronized event.
DQ SPECIAL — De Grasse picked up his third medal of the Games as Canada’s 4×100-metre relay team won bronze in a Canadian-record time. It looked like Canada was going to have to settle for a fourth-place finish before the United States was disqualified. The Canadian team finished in 37.64 seconds, breaking the mark set by the gold-medal winning team anchored by Donovan Bailey at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.
BACK-TO-BACK BRONZE — Canada’s women’s soccer team take home a bronze medal for the second Olympics in a row after beating host Brazil 2-1 in the third-place game. Christine Sinclair and Deanne Rose scored for the Canadians, who equalled their performance from the 2012 London Games.
JUMPING FOR JOY — Eric Lamaze picked up his second Olympic medal with a bronze in individual show jumping. Riding Fine Lady, the equestrian from Schomberg, Ont., took third place in a jump-off of six riders with zero faults on the day. Lamaze also won gold in 2008 aboard Hickstead, which puts him among seven riders who have won two medals in the show jumping’s individual event.
LONG TIME COMING — Catharine Pendrel of Kamloops, B.C., overcame an early crash and equipment problems to capture a bronze medal in women’s mountain biking. It was a satisfying result for the 35-year-old, who was a contender heading into the 2012 London Olympics as the reigning world champion, but wound up a disappointing ninth that came on the heels of a gut-wrenching fourth-place finish in Beijing in 2008.
