So far, former ND athletes have dominated for Canada in Rio.

Melissa Tancredi (‘04) lead the Canadian women’s soccer team in an upset win over powerhouse Germany, scoring BOTH goals in the 2-1 victory. They will square off with France Saturday night at 9 PM EST.

Former ND basketball star and Indiana Fever forward/center Natalie Achonwa continues to help the women’s Canadian basketball team advance, as our neighbors from the north knocked off Serbia in a gutsy comeback win late in the 4th quarter.

Be sure to continually check in with OFD, your Irish Olympic headquarters.
