Making history on the international sports stage apparently doesn't cut you any slack when it comes to an online English exam scheduled for the day after. A beaming Ruck, still processing her bumper medal haul of one gold, five silver and two bronze, didn't seem to mind after a breakthrough six-day competition that saw her win medals in all eight of her events. "Not in my wildest dreams," said the 17-year-old from Kelowna, B.C., when asked if she had expected so much hardware. But Ruck, who won two relay bronze at the Rio Olympics, had served notice she was something special with some eye-popping times since last summer. "Coming into the competition, I was really excited to see what would come out of it," she said. "Looking back at all my races and relays, I'm just so happy with how everything was." Ruck joins Canadian Ralph Hutton and Australians Susie O'Neill and Emily Seebohm as the only athletes to win eight medals at a Commonwealth Games. Hutton accomplished the feat in 1966 at the British Empire and Commonwealth Games in Kingston, Jamaica, while O'Neill did it in Kuala Lumpur in 1988 and Seebohm in 2010 in New Delhi. On Monday, Ruck had tied the Canadian women's record with her seventh medal, matching Elaine Tanner (four gold and three silver) in 1966. Thanks to a four-medal showing Tuesday, Canada finished the meet with 20 medals — three gold, 10 silver and seven bronze — including five in para-swimming events. Four years ago, Canadian swimmers won 11 (4-1-6) in Glasgow. John Atkinson, Swimming Canada's high-performance director, said the internal forecast had been between 14 and 18 medals.
