Penny Oleksiak - Silver

Penny Oleksiak has captured her second medal of the Olympic Games in as many days at Rio 2016, this time an individual silver in the 100 metre butterfly.

On Sunday evening at the Olympic Aquatics Park, Oleksiak made her mark after anchoring Canada to a 4x100m freestyle relay bronze medal a night earlier.

The 16-year-old had already broken her own world junior record in heats on Saturday, a feat she repeated in 56.46 seconds to make the podium in the 100m fly on Sunday.
