Canada’s Brianne Theisen-Eaton roared back to win bronze in the women’s heptathlon at the Rio Olympics.
The two-time world silver medallist from Humboldt, Sask., was in sixth place after a rocky Day 1.
But solid long jump and javelin events allowed her to climb up to third spot going into the final event the 800 metres.
Theisen-Eaton finished third in the final 800 heat to finish with 6,653 points.
Belgium’s Nafissatou won gold and 2012 champion Jessica Ennis-Hill took silver.
The medal was Canada’s first in track and field at these Games, and matches the one medal a bronze in high jump by Derek Drouin at the 2012 London Olympics.
