Not my best showing here in Rio, unfortunately. 7th place wasn't exactly my plan. It will take some time to wrap my head around my experience here but I know there are meaningful things that will come out of it. Watching Gord Downie's final concert last night at Canada Olympic House with family and friends really put things into perspective for me and I'm very grateful to be where I am today. Thank you to everyone for your support now and always.
Off to the closing ceremonies now with #teamcanada which I'm sure will be a blast!
This is what 0.003s looks like in my race. Not a great SF but happy to be in the Final tmrw!
At one point in his career, Olympian @markadejonge thought he might never compete again. Now, he’s officially headed to Rio to rep Canada in the 2016 Olympics. Congrats, Mark! #WhatItTakes
