Canadian swimmer Penny Oleksiak made history at the Tokyo Games by becoming our most decorated Olympian.

She collected her seventh medal in the pool, and at just 21 years old, it’s not a stretch to think she’ll add more hardware in Paris just three years from now.

Wes Gilbertson, covering the games for Postmedia, joins Dave to discuss Oleksiak’s jump to prominence at the 2016 Games, what her performance in Tokyo says about the strength of our swimming program, and what the future could hold.
