🚴‍♀️Cycling: Kelsey “Quadzilla” Mitchell’s unexpected gold medal win in the women’s track cycling sprint was the perfect way to cap off Team Canada’s record-breaking Olympics. Mitchell only began cycling competitively in 2017, when she bought her first adult bike. Now, she owns the podium.

🛶Canoe: Team Canada’s final bronze came from Laurence Vincent Lapointe and Katie Vincent in Saturday’s women's C-2 500m. After coming back from fifth place at the race’s halfway mark, the duo finished third for Vincent Lapointe’s second Tokyo medal and Vincent’s first.
