Bronze medallist Ashley Steacy shares her Olympic experience

Lethbridge’s Ashley Steacy had a historic run at the summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The former U of L Pronghorn helped Canada’s Rugby Sevens team capture a bronze medal in the first-ever Rugby Sevens event at the Olympic Games.

When it comes to rugby, the 29 year-old has done it all. Steacy has won three CIS championships, captured gold with Canada at the Pan Am Games in Toronto in 2015, and now has an Olympic bronze medal.

The rugby star is the first Lethbridge athlete to win an Olympic medal since Bob Kasting won bronze in the men’s 4 x 100 medley relay at Munich in 1972.

On Wednesday, our Matt Battochio had the chance to catch up with Steacy to talk about her amazing Olympic experience.
