Who runs the world?!
The women of Team Canada are running the show at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
As the Olympics approach the mid-way stage, all nine of Canada's medals so far have been won by the country's female athletes.
And not only are Team Canada's women winning medals, but they're also re-writing the history books at the same time.
As it stands on July 28, swimmer Penny Oleksiak has won two medals in the swimming pool – a bronze in the 200-metre freestyle event and a silver in the women's 4x100-metre relay, where she was joined by team members Kayla Sanchez, Margaret Mac Neil and Rebecca Smith. Mac Neil also won gold in the 100-metre butterfly.
