3-time Olympic medalist Mark Tewksbury hasn't swam competitively since retiring in 1992. But watching him react to Canadian swimmer Penny Oleksiak clinching a bronze medal for her team in the women's 4x100m freestyle relay would make you think he was next to jump in the pool.
Now working as an analyst for CBC Sports, watch as Tewksbury, who is no stranger to the Olympic games, intensely looks on as Canada wins its first medal in women's swimming since 1996, and the first 4x100m relay medal since 1976. What a great behind the scenes look at how the Olympic fever and patriotic feelings wash over everyone, even the professionals.
3-time Olympic medalist Mark Tewksbury was pretty excited about that bronze medal race, eh? 🍁 https://t.co/jCR2BFaGtX— CBC Olympics (@CBCOlympics) August 7, 2016
