On Day Five at the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games, swimmer Rachel Nicol and fencer Alexandre Lyssov captured their second medals, becoming Canada’s first multi-medallist Youth Olympians. Elsewhere, on the half-court, the basketball squad rolled to a 3-0 record.

Swimming: Canada’s great success in the Singapore Sports School pool continued Wednesday night, as gold and bronze medals were won in the women’s 100-metre breaststroke. Tera van Beilen (Oakville, Ont.) won the race in a time of 1:08.95, while teammate Rachel Nicol (Lethbridge, Alta.) finished third. “I knew I wanted to get a medal here, but for it to be gold is even better!” said van Beilen. Teammate Nicol said of her two medals: “These medals are precious. Not a lot of people have them. They’re hard to get and I know I’ll always have it.”

Fencing: Spectators witnessed high drama at the fencing venue. Alexandre Lyssov (Richmond Hill, Ont.) and Alanna Goldie (Calgary) were part of a team representing North America, winning bronze in the mixed team event. When Goldie hit the mat for the bronze medal match, the team trailed 10-4. After a huge run by Goldie, her squad leapt in front 15-12. “I was just in the moment and I had to make it happen,” Goldie said. “I listened to my coach and my teammates. It was good advice!” Lyssov, meanwhile, became the first Canadian – just hours before Rachel Nicol – to win a second Youth Olympic medal. “It means a lot to be first,” Lyssov said. “It’s very special after all my hard work.”

Basketball: Canada’s hoop dreams keep coming true. The girls three-on-three squad dispatched Korea 20-6 in their most complete game of the tournament. Their record improved to 3-0. “We kept playing strong defence, playing as a team, finishing every possession,” said Dakota Whyte. After a tight first half had Canada holding a slim 9-6 lead, the girls pulled away with 11 unanswered points in the second half. “I think we loosened up a little. We figured out our strengths and used them to our advantage.” Canada faces Russia (2-1) Thursday and would win the pool with a victory.
