Canadian swimmer Penny Oleksiak narrowly misses eighth world championship medal

BUDAPEST, Hungary – Penny Oleksiak narrowly missed out on a third medal at the 2022 world aquatics championships with a fourth-place finish Thursday in the women’s 100-metre freestyle.

Oleksiak, from Toronto, was third at the turn, but finished .06 seconds off the podium in a time of 52.98 seconds.

Australia’s Mollie O’Callaghan finished first in to pick up her second gold medal in Budapest, and fourth overall.

World-record holder Sarah Sjoestroem of Sweden was second (52.80) and Torri Huske of the United States was third (52.92).

Toronto’s Kayla Sanchez was sixth (53.59).

Oleksiak swam the anchor leg to help Canada win bronze in the women’s 4×200 freestyle relay, giving her seven career world championship medals.

That is tied for the most by a Canadian with Kylie Masse of LaSalle, Ont., who has also won two medals (gold in the women’s 60-metre backstroke, silver in the 100 backstroke) in Budapest.

Oleksiak helped Canada win silver in the women’s 4×100 freestyle relay Saturday on the opening day of the event.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published June 23, 2022.
