MADISON BROAD - SILVER
Madison Broad raced to a 200m backstroke silver and became Team Canada's second swimming medallist at Buenos Aires 2018. The sweet silver marked the nation's fourth medal of the Games.
Broad went into 200m backstroke final ranked fifth, the same position she secured the day before in the 100m distance. However, a quick start allowed the Canadian to clock a time of 2:10.32 seconds to finish 0.19s behind the Republic of Moldova’s Tatiana Salcutan. The bronze went to Australia’s Kaylee McKeown.
Broad has a chance at another Buenos Aires 2018 podium. The Canadian will race in the 50m backstroke heats on Wednesday.
