Go For Gold.

The 2016 Summer Olympics have begun in Rio, Brazil, and Aspen Ridge Homes couldn’t be prouder of the Canadian women and men who have dedicated their lives to their sport, balanced training with work, and sacrificed sleeping in and going out so that they can be the absolute best athletes possible.

Medal Count

Canada has already won two medals, one bronze and one silver (both for swimming), putting us in 9th place.  But considering we’re only on Day 3, excited fans can expect many more medals over the next couple of weeks. There are currently 314 athletes competing in 37 different sports, including golf, rugby, soccer, volleyball, track and swimming. 

The most medals Canada has ever won was during the 1984 Summer Games. The Los Angeles Olympics is where our athletes earned 44 medals; 10 gold, 18 silver and 16 bronze.

Athletes To Watch

Andre De Grasse

Sport: Track

Originally from Markham, Ontario, sprinter Andre De Grasse is making his Olympic debut this year. De Grasse and fellow USC alum Aaron Brown are the only two Canadians since 1999 to run sub-10 second times in the 100-metre dash!

Rosie MacLennan

Sport: Trampoline

27-year-old Rosie MacLennan is a defending Olympic champion and has been steady since London, winning at the 2013 world championships and 2015 Pan Am Games. She could very likely return from Brazil with another gold medal.

Damian Warner

Sport: Decathlon

At the 2012 Olympic Games, Damian Warner finished fifth despite his inexperience, and he’s only improved since then. Last year, he set the Canadian record - and won gold at the Pan Am Games.
