LONDON - A silver and two bronze on Day 12 keeps Canada on pace for its medal objective of top-12 in the overall count at the 2012 Summer Games.

The Canadian team jumped to 14 medals and sits 12th. Hungary is three back in the overall race, but that country has six gold medals compared to one so far for Canada.

The good:

— Adam Van Koeverden of Oakville, Ont., collects Olympic medal No. 4 in kayak with a silver in the 1,000 metres.

— Third-generation Olympian Mark Oldershaw of Burlington, Ont., takes bronze in the canoe 1,000 metres.

— Calgary's Carol Huynh follows up her gold medal of 2008 in women's wrestling with bronze in the 48-kilogram category.

— Damien Warner of London, Ont., ranks third after the first day of decathlon.

The bad:

— Montreal's Martine Dugrenier loses bronze-medal bout in women's wrestling 63-kilogram division.

Grade: A-minus.

Canada's best medal chances Thursday are wrestler Tonya Verbeek of Thorold, Ont., in the 55-kilogram division and the women's soccer team's bronze-medal game against France.
