#CANWNT Friendly ⚽️ Canada vs. South Korea
After a historic gold-medal Olympic run and a celebration tour, the Canadian Women’s National Soccer Team will be back in international competition in just a few weeks as it sets off to Mexico to begin its World Cup Qualification journey.
First, the team will play a friendly match on home soil Sunday afternoon against South Korea at BMO Field in Toronto. The game starts at 3 p.m. ET!
All eyes will be on the Canadians as they not only fight for a place in the first big international competition since winning their gold medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, but also as the team fights for equal pay during contract negotiations with Canada Soccer.
Canada’s best result in World Cup competition came in 2003 when the team placed fourth, and it came close once again in 2015 by reaching the quarter-finals. The team will hope the momentum of
their recent Olympic runs, including the gold and two bronzes at previous Olympic Games, will provide a boost at the World Cup.
Make sure to catch the Canada vs South Korea match Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on OneSoccer!
2022 FINA World Aquatics Championships
Take a dive into the deep end and tune into the 2022 FINA World Aquatics Championships in Budapest, Hungary!
So far, Team Canada swimmers have done very well and this includes an all-star performance by 15-year-old Summer McIntosh.
She took home Canada’s first medal of worlds, winning silver in the women’s 400m freestyle and broke her own national record with a time of 3 minutes 59.39 seconds.
The Toronto-born teenager is the youngest Canadian to win a medal at this competition since 1986 and is one of four women to ever clock under four minutes at the event. Jaw dropping!
McIntosh was beaten by American swimmer Katie Ledecky who took home the gold.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! McIntosh won two more medals on Wednesday — gold in 200m butterfly and bronze as part of the 4x200m freestyle relay team. Look out the young superstar in the 400m medley on Saturday.
Where to swim to next, you ask?
KPMG Women’s PGA Championship
The best female golfers continue to battle it out this month at the KPMG Women's PGA Championship!
There are many high-ranked players headed to Maryland and the purse for the tournament has doubled from $4.5 to $9 million.
The newly renovated Congressional Country Club will see none other than American defending champion and World No. 2 Nelly Korda.
Last year’s competition was the first major championship of her career. And she’s off to a pretty good run as of late, finishing tied for second at The Meijer LPGA Classic last week.
Canadian Brooke Henderson will also look to continue her success. Henderson took the title at the ShopRite LPGA Classic, her first in 2022, and took home the KPMG championship back in 2016. She’s definitely one to look out for.
And of course, last but not least World No. 3 Minjee Lee and No. 1 Jin Young Ko will also be in attendance. These two huge stars are due for another win and they just might get it this weekend!
