Canada’s Taylor Ruck ties Commonwealth Games record with eight medals
GOLD COAST, Australia – Kylie Masse won two silver including an historic one with Taylor Ruck as Canada’s swimming team completed the Commonwealth Games with 20 medals on Tuesday.
Ruck won her eighth medal which tied Canada’s Ralph Hutton (1966) and Australians Emily Seebohm (2010) and Susie O’Neill (1998) – also all swimmers – for the most medals won by an athlete at a single Games.
‘’I’m just super excited to win that many medals,’’ said Ruck, who trains at Swimming Canada’s High Performance Centre-Ontario. ‘’Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would win this many. This has been a fantastic meet for Team Canada. I’m just so happy to share so many experiences with my best friends.’’
