Canada's women already have two gold medals at these Rio Games, That's the most for the Canadian women at a Summer Olympics since 1992, when they won four.

So that's good news, obviously.

More importantly, they're carrying Team Canada right now.

The first 11 medals won in Rio by Canadians all were won by women, including the golds by Rosie MacLennan (trampoline) and Penny Oleksiak (swimming).

Including nations with at least six medals entering Saturday evening at the Rio Games, Canada is the only one to have them all won by the same gender. The next closest on that front is South Africa, with five medals as of early Saturday evening _ all won by male athletes.

"The most important thing," MacLennan said, "is to chase the dream and love the journey."
