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.
I'm proud to be a female competing in a male-dominated sport & proving we belong here too! <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/LikeAGirl?src=hash">#LikeAGirl</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/girlpower?src=hash">#girlpower</a> <a href="https://t.co/xUwV8YIYXn">pic.twitter.com/xUwV8YIYXn</a>—@jen_kish
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.
60% of Team <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/CAN?src=hash">#CAN</a> is made up of women. Women have won 100% of the first 5 medals. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Rio2016?src=hash">#Rio2016</a> <a href="https://t.co/yhGAtcQjsY">pic.twitter.com/yhGAtcQjsY</a>—@MonikaPlatek
What took us 16 years to accomplish, our women just did in the first 3 days.
