Hilary Caldwell’s Bronze Win In 200m Backstroke Gave Canada It’s 6th Olympic Medal That Even Got Justin Trudeau Excited – Rio 2016

As a Canadian trying to remain neutral in Rio was hard at the Olympic Pool. I am not gonna say what was going on, I’ll just let Justin Trudeau express it, as he did to Hilary Caldwell who brought Canada it’s 6th Olympic medal in Swimming. Show the girl your love and follow her on Twitter.

“I saw the time, I looked up and saw the three lights on the blocks so I knew I was third. I was happy, but I did want the gold medal. I saw the time and I gave a little scowl.” – Hilary Caldwell


Almost every night this week, Hilary Caldwell tried to remain patient while she watched the swimming competition in via television from the Olympic village.

She watched as her Canadian teammates took the world by tidal wave.

Caldwell knew her time would come, however, and vowed to be ready to join the party that has made Canadian women an emerging force in the sport.

On Friday at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium, the 25-year-old from White Rock, B.C., got her chance and delivered, earning a bronze medal in the women’s 200-metre backstroke.

It was Canada’s sixth medal in the pool this week.
