Just two days after winning the women's rugby sevens bronze medal with her Canadian teammates, Jen Kish posted an inspirational picture from Halifax-based newspaper The Chronicle Herald. The cartoon sends an incredible message and showcases the ongoing theme of female strength in sports.

Kish and the rest of Team Canada proved that they are some of the toughest athletes in the world with their Olympic performance. The amount of joy expressed by the athletes following their win was contagious and the team made an entire country proud.

The women of Team Canada have been quite the story so far throughout these Olympics as they are responsible for all of Canada's five medals.
