Day 15 competition has come to an end. Canadian athletes added one medal today. Mountain Bike racer Catharine Pendrel finished third despite an early crash in the Women’s Cross-Country race to win Bronze. With one more day of competition remaining Canada has a total of 22 medals (4 Gold, 3 Silver, 15 Bronze).
On taking bronze:
“I feel amazing right now. I am trying to get my body to calm down. I had a crash on the start loop, and I was fighting through traffic, and then I had a mechanical in lap 1, and I felt like things were not going my way. I just kept fighting through, and it paid off in the end. I am just so happy that it came together on the day. This is a lifetime pursuit, and your lifestyle. It’s emotional, it’s physical, and it is such a relief to cross the line.”
