Canada’s grabbed their first three medals at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
Canada’s first medal was a silver won by the women’s 4x100m freestyle relay team lead by Penny Oleksiak. The medal is the fifth of her career, tying her as Canada’s most decorated summer Olympian.
Canadian divers Jennifer Abel and Mélissa Citrini-Beaulieu reached the podium, grabbing silver in the women’s 3m synchro springboard event. This is Canada’s best Olympic result in any diving event since Beijing 2008.
Late last night, London’s Maggie MacNeil wins our first gold medal in 100m butterfly. Pretty good weekend for Maggie, she won a silver in the relay earlier.
Cleveland’s Major League Baseball team announced on Friday that they will change their name to Guardians.
The change comes after a decade of protests about the Indians name and logo being offensive to Native Americans. They have been known as the Indians since 1915. The name change was announced with a video voiced by Tom Hanks.
Why Guardians? Down the road from the downtown ballpark, there are two large landmark stone edifices — referred to as guardians — on the bridge over the Cuyahoga River. Cleveland’s team colors will stay the same, and the new Guardians’ new logos will incorporate some of the architectural features of the bridge.
