To come from seventh place after 50 metres and win a gold medal in a 100 metre race was amazing!
And the fact that Penny is just 16 years old and now has four medals at the 2016 games is equally amazing.

Amazing job! A 16 year-old girl competing against grown women and succeeding. She's already in the discussion to be one of Canada's greatest Olympians and theoretically, she's got many more to come!

Is there anything better than her reaction to when she saw the results?
