Tokyo Olympics: Canada wins gold medal in women’s eight rowing

The Canadian women’s eight rowing team captured its first gold medal in nearly 20 years at the Tokyo Olympics on Friday. Canada dominated right out of the gate, with silver medalists New Zealand unable to catch them and China managing to edge out Australia for the bronze. Meanwhile, Canada’s women’s soccer team beat Brazil 4-3 in penalties after going scoreless in regular and extra time. With this quarterfinal win, Canada is through to the semifinals in the Olympic tournament and will face either the Netherlands or the U.S. team in the semifinal on Monday.
