Rosie MacLennan, Canada’s flag bearer at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games Rio 2016, has defended her 2012 Olympic gold medal in the 2016 trampoline event.
It’s Canada’s second gold medal of the games. Yesterday, 16-year-old Penny Oleksiak captured gold in the 100 M freestyle.
On Twitter, Team Canada confirmed MacLennan is the first Canadian summer athlete to defend an individual Olympic gold medal.
