Collingwood 2014 grad Madison Mailey won an Olympic gold medal today as part of Canada's eight rowing crew. Canada's team led from start to finish and held off the current world champions from New Zealand to win the gold. It was a tremendous performance. Canada has not won the women's eight since 1992 in Barcelona.
