Tokyo Olympics: Canada defeats U.S. 1-0 in women’s soccer

Team Canada has defeated Team USA in women’s soccer 1-0, with a goal scored by 23-year-old Jessie Fleming on a penalty kick 74 minutes into play. Meanwhile, American gymnast Simone Biles will compete in the balance beam event after having withdrawn from a number of other individual events. Canadian gymnast Ellie Black will compete in Tuesday’s balance beam final, the Canadian Olympic Committee confirmed Monday. Black pulled out of last Thursday’s women’s all-around final after she sprained her left ankle during training. Sprinter Andre De Grasse was presented with his bronze medal Monday for the men’s 100-metres event on Sunday where he became the first Canadian male athlete to reach the podium at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
