Three more bronze medals for Canada. Divers Roseline Filion of Laval, Que., and Meaghan Benfeito of Montreal kicked things off today with a third-place finish in the 10-metre synchro event. Antoine Valois-Fortier won a bronze in men’s judo less than 30 minutes later. Weightlifter Christine Girard has captured bronze in the women’s 63-kilogram class.
I mentioned before that I believe the only sports environment in which the results can be changed long after the fact would the International Olympics.

Canadian weightlifter Christine Girard was originally given the bronze medal in the women’s 63-kilogram class in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. But she has just been upgraded to a gold medal after Maiya Maneza of Kazakhstan and Svetlana Tsarukaeva of Russia — were stripped of their gold and silver medals, respectively, after a 2016 retest of samples showed they had cheated by taking steroids.
