Canadian press reports that Jessica Tuomela of Sault Ste. Marie and her guide Emma Skaug captured bronze in the Para triathlon, Canada's first-ever medal at the Commonwealth Games being held in Birmingham UK.

Tuomela, a former Paralympic swimmer who took up triathlons nine years ago, raced to a time of 1:15.12 with Skaug.

"We executed all three disciplines the way we wanted to," Tuomela said. "The goal was to go out, be steady and get in a rhythm and stay there."
