Swimming star Penny Oleksiak has had a tough time since becoming the first Canadian to win Olympic gold since Mark Tewksbury back at 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona. Plagued by a shoulder injury, she’s measuring success one step at a time. With 2017 Canadian World Championship Trials underway, it appears Penny is well on her way back to top form. Penny was, of course, one of the biggest surprises of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, upsetting the Campbell sisters for Olympic gold in the 100 meter freestyle (along with Simone Manuel), but, according to Penny, life has not changed much.
