Women's Event

It was an exciting day for the Canadian women's team in Rio de Janeiro. Melanie had a successful day, with a strong fence and a best time in the swim. Donna was the top female on the team, with a strong combined, where she finished 5th overall. Mel was 6th, just behind her. And Mathea had a tough fence, but also a best time in the pool. She also had a stellar ride on a difficult horse. She finished 13th.

In the team event, the women placed 2nd overall in the Pan American Championships, and 1st in the NORCECA team event. Donna was second in the NORCECA individual event, while Mel was third. It was a pleasure to hear the Canadian anthem play.
