Lindsay Jennerich and Patricia Obee of Victoria earned silver in the women's lightweight double sculls Friday morning. The pair, favoured to land on the podium, trailed for most of the race, but came on strong in the final 500 meters to finish second. Ilse Paulis and Maaike Head of the Netherlands won gold.

Tennis

Canada's Daniel Nestor and Vasek Pospisil lost 2-0 in straight sets to the U.S. pair Steve Johnson and Jack Sock in the men's doubles tennis bronze medal match.

Swimming

Canada's Hilary Caldwell won the bronze medal in the women's 200-metre backstroke, adding to Canada's medal haul in the pool.

Soccer

Canada defeated France 1-0 in the women's soccer quarterfinal with a second-half goal by Sophie Schmidt. The team won bronze four years ago at the 2012 London Olympics after defeating France by the same score.

The Canadians were badly outplayed, had but one shot on goal and probably should have lost. Yet they won, Cathal Kelly writes.
