More about Canada’s Women’s National Team
Canada recently made history with back-to-back bronze medals at the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games. At the last three major women’s tournaments, Canada finished third at the London 2012 Women’s Olympic Football Tournament, sixth at the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015, and third at the Rio 2016 Women’s Olympic Football Tournament.
Canada’s bronze medal win at the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament Rio 2016 saw them reach its highest-ever position of fourth in the latest FIFA/Coca-Cola Women’s World Ranking. Winning five of their six matches at Rio 2016, Canada not only matched their achievement of winning bronze at the London 2012 Olympics, they were rewarded with a massive 93-point increase in their rating to move up six places from tenth position. It is the first time that Canada have moved into the top five, surpassing their previous high of seventh place.
