Penny Oleksiak won Canada’s first gold medal of the Rio Olympics tonight – coming back from 7th at the turn to TIE FOR FIRST and have an Olympic Record – no big deal.

Earlier in today Penny tweeted that she and her teammate Kylie Masse tried to get Drake tickets to celebrate their medals…but they were ‘basically sold out.’ Twitter exploded and called for Drake to give them tickets to his next Toronto show.
He didn’t respond (in his defence, he hasn’t tweeted in five days and probably isn’t paying attention), but a radio station in Toronto 93-5 The Move sent a tweet saying that they got her covered.
As they should – she is currently the biggest national hero our country has!
