Dec 19 2017, 6:03 am

Ryan Cochrane will swim the 1500m final on Saturday.

University of Victoria’s own Ryan Cochrane (Swimming) has won his heat to easily advance in third lane position for Saturday’s final swim. China’s Sun Yang is his main competition, with the fastest time in qualification.

This will be Cochrane’s second Olympic appearance, his last being a bronze medal performance in Beijing at this same distance. He has also earned silver medals at the past two World Championships.

The eights narrowly miss gold.

An exciting day six also brought Canada’s second silver medal, when the Women’s Eights rowing crew narrowly missed the gold in their finals competition.

Keep your eye on to make sure you don’t miss a beat!
