Olympic hero Penny Oleksiak may have just won four medals in Rio — the most any Canadian has ever won at a single Olympics — but now she just wants to get home and play Pokémon.
Oleksiak said she doesn't like wearing all of her medals at once because they get tangled, which is a very cool problem to have. For now, she's just keeping them all tucked away "in some socks" in her hotel room.
Oleksiak also said winning a gold medal is a great way to show up the haters. And since she's about to start Grade 11, she probably has some.
"I don’t think it’s a 'suck it' to anyone in particular, but it’s pretty great to hear from people that don’t like me," she said.
