Four years after winning Canada's only gold medal at the London Olympics, MacLennan was chosen to lead her country's delegation into the 2016 Olympic Opening Ceremony.

The 20-year-old from Belarus said that his goal for his Olympic debut is, "Maybe silver! I want to go gradually. Silver in Rio, and then after that, maybe gold." He exceeded his expectations, outscoring the 2012 Olympic champion and 2015 world champion to claim the top spot of the podium.
