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.

Katie Ledecky becomes 1st woman since 1968 to sweep 200, 400 & 800 in single Olympics – Rio 2016

Katie Ledecky is such a pain to film because if you keep the camera on her you loose everyone else, it just isn’t fair.

Katie Ledecky made history by shattering the world record and the field in 800m freestyle.

How unfair is it to race against Ledecky you ask?. Ledecky finished 11-plus minutes ahead of silver medalist Jazz Carlin of Great Britain, who posted a time of 8:16.17. Taking bronze was Boglarka Kapas of Hungary, who finished in 8:16.37. The separation between Carlin and eight-place finisher Sarah Kohler of Germany (8:27.75) was smaller than that between Ledecky and Carlin by nearly two seconds.

You see how filming her can be a pain now, you lose the rest of the field.

This is what I mean if you keep the camera on her, then you wont have anyone else in the frame.

Macaulay Culkin who was in a music video ‘Black Or White’ with the greatest pop star ever Michael Jackson was at the Olympic pool when history was made in women’s 100m freestyle final.CpMdLWAVIAQ8St8

Simone Manuel of the USA tied for gold becoming the first African-American to win gold in swimming, while Canadian 16 years old Penny Oleksiak became the first Canadian women to win gold in swimming. There time was also a new Olympic record.

Simone Manuel had a few words to say in this emotional evening about being black and she hopes one day it won’t matter what the color of your skin is. The best for me was that you had two skin colors and both sharing gold. We are all equal don’t let anyone tell your different and this is proof in the pool and in the music of Michael Jackson. This is also why we have the Olympics.

“I mean, this medal is not just for me, it’s for a whole bunch of people who have came before me and been an inspiration to me,” she said. “It’s for all the people after me who can’t, who believe they can’t do it. I just want to be an inspiration to others so that you can do it.”
