I was looking for a picture of our two bronze medallists from yesterday, but our story image supplier didn't have one. Oh well. Anyways, yesterday saw Canada reaching the podium for the first time in these Olympic Games, with Emilie Haymans and Jennifer Abel finishing 3rd overall in the women's 3m sychronized diving. We also saw many other Canadians attempting to do well in the other sports. The action continues today, with more events past the jump.
