Canadian Interuniversity Sport – RIO DE JANEIRO (CIS) – After more than two weeks of competition, 16 current, former or incoming CIS student-athletes are bringing home medals from the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Former Calgary Dino Erica Wiebe captured gold in women’s wrestling, while Sherbrooke’s Josée Bélanger and ex-Manitoba Bison Desiree Scott won bronze in women’s soccer during the second week of the Summer Games, adding to the 13 CIS medallists from the first nine days.

The 16 athletes account for seven of Canada’s 22 medals in Rio, seven of whom previously attended a Summer Universiade. 

In addition, four former non-CIS athletes that have competed at the FISU Games won bronze medals, with Brendon Rodney and Mobolade Ajomale of the 4×100-metre relay team, joining diver Roseline Filion and swimmer Brittany MacLean on the podium. 

Trampolinist Rosie MacLennan (Toronto), rower Lindsay Jennerich (Victoria), and cyclists Allison Beveridge (Calgary), Laura Brown (Victoria), Kirsti Lay (Calgary) and Catherine Pendrel (Victoria) also won medals in non-CIS sports.

Overall, 158 athletes with ties to CIS member schools competed at the 2016 Summer Olympics, of which 81 are current, former or future CIS student-athletes.
