TORONTO, Canada—We had to do it.
Following Canada’s triumphant victory over Sweden on penalties, to capture the first-ever Olympic Gold Medal in women’s soccer, Waking the Red Weekly hosts Michael Singh and Mitchell Tierney went live to try and put what the victory means for the sport in this nation.
From discussing the legacy of Christine Sinclair to the performances of Stephanie Labbe and Jessie Fleming — to everything inbetween and what comes next — the two dive into a special 30-minute bonus edition of WTRWeekly presented by Footy Talks Live dedicated strictly to the historic performance of the Canadian women’s national team at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. Moreover, the duo talk about what this victory could mean for Canadian soccer in this country moving forward.
