This victory is Boutin’s fourth Olympic medal. She won three medals at the 2018 Olympics – one silver and two bronze.
Italy’s Arianna Fontana repeats as the gold medalist in this event with a time of 42.49. Suzanne Schults of the Netherlands won silver.
Boutin’s bronze medal is Canada’s fifth time participating in the Beijing Olympics to date.
