Wein and Bronze
Richard Weinberger has won Canada's first-ever medal in open-water 10-km swimming. The 22-year old from Surrey and who trains in Victoria, BC won last year's test event in London but this victory comes against a much stronger field.
The open-water marathon swim debuted in Beijing as an Olympic sport but Canada did not even have any swimmers qualified.
Weinberger finished just 5.2 seconds behind Tunisian gold medalist Oussama Mellouli. German Thomas Lurz won silver.
