It was an emotional day in Tokyo on Monday as the Canadians set national records and won a historic bronze medal in judo.

The 24-year-old was yearning for a chance in the gold medal competition. CBC Sports’ Devin Heroux recounts Klimkait’s dominance on the mat over Slovenia’s Kaja Kajzer and how she came back after a tough semi-final loss.

On the men’s side, Canadian Arthur Margelidon made it through the draft to advance to the bronze medal game, but lost to Mongolian Tsogtbaatar Tsend-Ochir.

The opportunity presented itself five years after Margelidon’s hopes were dashed in Rio. The 27-year-old was scheduled to make his Olympic debut with Team Canada in 2016, but broke his arm and was unable to compete.
