Our first athlete of the year back in Olympics

Leaside’s first athlete of the year, Martha McCabe, has once again won a spot on Canada’s Olympic team. She’ll compete in the 200-meter breaststroke in Rio this summer.

McCabe, raised in Bennington Heights and a Leaside High graduate, was on the Canadian Olympic team in 2012 in London. She finished fifth.

She won a bronze medal the year before in the World Championship. Last year she won a silver in the Pam Am games in Toronto.
