It's time to determine the ultimate Canadian sports moment of the summer of 2015.

Welcome to the final round of voting where the two reigning moments go head-to-head.

Below are the results from round one and two of the bracket.

Round 2:

Matchup No. 6: Ellie Black, 5 medals vs. worlds double-gold (View results)

For the seventh and final matchup, Canada's wheelchair rugby Parapan Am gold and Rio berth takes on Ellie Black's 5 Pan Am medals. 

In August, the Canadian wheelchair rugby team's gold-medal win at the Toronto Parapan Am Games qualified them for the Rio Paralympics.

Anyone who has ever watched a wheelchair rugby game knows the intensity of the sport, so you can only imagine how the atmosphere was magnified when Canada defeated the rival Americans in double overtime. 

Going up against the wheelchair rugby team is Ellie Black's gymnastics domination of the Pan Am Games. 

The 19-year-old dominated Toronto 2015 by pulling in five medals in artistic gymnastics: gold for her balance beam routine, gold in the floor exercise, gold in women's all around, silver in the team event and bronze in vault. 

Black was the most decorated Canadian at the Pan Am Games.
