Teenager Penny Oleksiak on fire in the pool for Canada

Posted: Updated:

Canada's Penny Oleksiak has produced both her and her country's second medal of the Rio Games in as many days.


The 16-year-old from Toronto won a silver medal in the 100-meter butterfly on Sunday and swam the anchor leg of the women's 4 x 100 freestyle that earned bronze on Saturday.


There may be more medals on tap for the teen sensation with the 4 x 200 relay and women's 100-meter freestyle races coming up Wednesday and Thursday at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.


Canada's goal at the Rio Games is a top-12 ranking among countries in total medals won. The Canadian team won 18 medals — including one gold — four years ago in London.
