Fourth-Place Medal

Canada’s synchronized swim team offers tribute to U.S. women’s soccer

Canada's synchronized swim team must have clairvoyant powers. During its first event in the team competition, its soccer-themed routine was a moving, early tribute to the gold-medal winning U.S. soccer team.

Here, they are honoring the great Hope Solo and the many saves she made on the way to gold.


And here, a nod to the great feet of Abby Wambach.

Thanks, Canadian synchronized swimming team. It's nice of you to look past the bad blood between the two countries' soccer teams to craft this lovely tribute.
