Olympics Monday: Here's what we're watching
The 2012 Games aren’t over yet. Canadian fans still have a few key moments, memories and events to look forward to:
Van Koeverden’s 1,000: Kayaker Adam van Koeverden is set to prove himself Monday in the men’s K1 1,000 metres. After a disappointing showing in Beijing, he’s got a lot to prove. Win, lose or draw, this race will likely be remembered in the annals of Canadian amateur sports.
Spencer’s wild card: Boxer Mary Spencer, a three-time world champion who got into the Olympics on a wild card, has her first bout Monday in the women’s middleweight (75 kg) quarter-finals. Thursday is the final, when Spencer, if she makes it, can show the world the force behind that wild card.
First Timers: A few first-time Olympians are set to race for medals over the coming days including cyclist Tara Whitten, who sets off in the women’s omnium at the London Velodrome on Monday.
