A marathon swim bronze brings the team to 17 medals, just one off the total of Beijing four years ago.
The current count is one gold, five silver and 11 bronze. Canada won three gold in Beijing.
The Canadian team's objective, however, is a top-12 finish in the overall medal count.
Sitting 12th with two days to go and just two medals ahead of Hungary in 13th, Canada needs a couple more no matter the colour.
— Richard Weinberger of Victoria wins bronze in the marathon swim, becoming the first Canadian to reach the podium in that event.
— Canada's 4x100-metre relay team qualifies third for Saturday's final.
— Halifax paddler Mark de Jonge wins both heat and semifinal en route to Saturday's kayak race in the 200-metre sprint.
— Hugues Fournel of Lachine, Que., and Ryan Cochrane of Windsor, N.S. — not to be confused with the Canadian swimmer of the same name — grab last berth in Saturday's final for the K-2 200.
— Karine Sergerie of Sainte-Catharine, Que., loses her quarter-final bout in taekwondo. She was a silver medallist four years ago.
— Matthew Gentry of Burnaby, B.C., falls just short of a wrestling medal. He loses his bronze-medal match.
Canada's best medal chance Saturday is Catharine Pendrel of Harvey Station, N.B., in women's mountain bike.
