Team Canada clinched softball bronze at Tokyo 2020 on Tuesday, defeating Mexico 3-2 at Yokohama Stadium.
It’s the first time Canada has won a medal in softball at an Olympic Games. Before this year’s result, Canada’s best finish was fourth place at Beijing 2008.
Softball was making its return to the Games after a 13-year absence. Three members of this year’s Canadian squad and 2007 FISU World University Games champions – Danielle Lawrie, Kaleigh Rafter, and Jenn Salling – played in Beijing. Regula also competed at Athens 2004.
