An Olympic medal will likely make its way to the Central Interior. Kayla Moleschi of Williams Lake is part of the Canadian Women's Rugby Sevens team, which captured a bronze medal Monday. She is the only B.C.-born player on the rugby squad.  The team won the bronze medal game against Britain 33-10 in a hard fought battle. “We are so proud of Kayla, and the entire women’s sevens team,” said Cariboo-Prince George MP Todd Doherty. “Kayla, you have taken your sport from Williams Lake and all over the world to the Olympics, and now you are coming home an Olympic Medalist. Congratulations on this momentous achievement, and I look forward to watching you as you continue your very promising career in women’s rugby.” This win marks a historic landmark in Canadian sports, specifically in women’s rugby. This is Canada’s first Olympic rugby medal in both women’s and men’s games. “It is indeed a good day for the future of Canadian rugby,” said Doherty. “And a great day for all Canadians. I will be watching with bated breath as the games continue in Rio, and I would like to wish the entire Canadian Olympic Team the best of luck. Go Canada Go!”
