Day 13 at the Rio Games could be a lucky one for Canada.
There will be two medal opportunities on the track Thursday.
The second day of the two-day Olympic decathlon gets underway with Londoner Damian Warner sitting in third place.
That event kicks off at 8:30 a.m. and runs until approximately 9 p.m. Thursday.
Warner is a medal favourite after winning silver at the 2015 world championships. He also won gold at the Commonwealth Games in 2014, and at the Pan Am Games in Toronto last year.
Meanwhile, star sprinter Andre De Grasse advanced to the men’s 200 metre final after a neck-and-neck finish with reigning champion Usain Bolt of Jamaica.
De Grasse set a new Canadian record in the semi-finals on Wednesday with a time of 19.80 seconds.
The 200 metre final starts at 9:30 p.m. Thursday.
Elsewhere, Canadian teen Brooke Henderson is in a tie for 19th place heading into the second round of the women’s Rio Olympic golf tournament.
The 18-year-old from Smiths Falls got off to a rough start and finished the first round at 1-under.
Canadian divers Meaghan Benfeito and Roseline Filion will compete in the semifinals of the women’s 10-metre platform event.
They’re gunning for their second medals of the Rio Games after winning in the 10-metre synchronized event. The semi-final and finals are both scheduled for today.
Also Thursday, Melissa Bishop of Eganville is on to the women’s 800-metre semi-final.
Freestyle wrestling continues with Canada represented by two Commonwealth Games champions.
Erica Wiebe of Stittsville and Danielle Lappage of Olds, Alberta both won gold in 2014 in Glasgow, Scotland. Saskatoon’s Jillian Gallays will also see action on the mat.
Canada will be well represented in the semifinals of the men’s 1,500 metres.
Nathan Brannen of Cambridge and Charles Philibert-Thiboutot will run in separate races as they try to advance to the final.
