The majority of action during the Tokyo Olympics happens as most Canadians are fast asleep. While you were cozy in your bed, however, members of Team Canada were making their push for the podium.
Here's what you missed from Day 5 of the Summer Games:
Women's 200m Freestyle Swimming: Penny Oleksiak makes Canadian Summer Games history
It was a night to remember for Canadians that tuned in to see Oleksiak compete in the women's 200-metre freestyle final on Day 5 of the Games, as the swimmer claimed bronze in the event. The medal marks her second of the 2020 Games, and her sixth-ever at the Olympics, making her the most decorated Canadian summer Olympian ever.

The swimmer from Toronto, Ontario, completed the women's 200m freestyle with a time of 1:54.70. Placing second was Hong Kong's Siobhan Bernadette Haughey, who earned a time of 1:53.92. Claiming gold was Australia's Ariarne Titmus, whose time of 1:53.50 set a new Olympic record.
Pulling from both the Summer and Winter Games, Oleksiak is tied with Clara Hughes and Cindy Klassen for the most Olympic medals by a Canadian. With multiple events still remaining for Oleksiak, she could very well leave Tokyo as the all-time leader.

This is the weirdest pre-game ritual I've ever seen.
Prior to competing in a match at the Olympics, Martyna Trajdos of Germany asked her coach, Claudiu Pusa, to shake her by the shoulders and slap her face to get her fired up.
