Canada kept their medal count rolling with a bronze and a silver at the London Games on Thursday and despite adding two more medals to the nation's tally, the biggest story of the day was Canada's historic soccer victory.
All eyes were on Canada's women's soccer team as they took on France in the bronze medal in the afternoon at City of Coventry Stadium. The match got off to a slow start with neither goal keepers facing any serious threats during the first 45 minutes. The second half of the match was a different story with France taking control of the ball, landing plenty of scoring opportunities and thoroughly testing Canada's goalie, Erin Katrina McLeod.
But despite France's 25 shots, Canada forced the match into overtime. It was there that midfielder Diana Matherson scored the lone goal to end the match.
Later in the day, Canada landed their second medal when Tonya Vanbreek lost her match to Japan's Saori Yoshida. Vanbreek lost her match after Yoshida landed a takedown in the first round and won the second round after Canada called for a challenge.
Yoshida had already scored a point in the second round and added one more when Canada's challenge was found invalid. In wrestling, a wrestler can score points if their opponent's challenge is ruled invalid by the judges.
Day 13 would also end on a bittersweet note for Damian Warner, Canada's lone decathlete who finished fifth in the event. Still, the London native managed to record a personal best 8442 points at the Olympics this year.
Canada currently sits 12th in the overall medal count with 16.
