On the penultimate night of swimming at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium, Hilary Caldwell made sure Canada found its way to the podium, bringing bronze in the women’s 200 metre backstroke.

In a race that included four-time Rio 2016 Olympic medallist Katinka Hosszu of Hungary, Caldwell put Canada in double digits in the medal count, including the sixth Canadian podium in the pool.

Canada now stands at two gold, two silver and six bronze over seven days of the Olympic Games.
