Leah Smith has been leading the way for Virginia athletes in Rio, winning her second medal of the 2016 Games and her first gold.

On Wednesday, rowing alumna Inge Janssen got her turn on the medal stand, winning a silver medal with the Dutch quadruple sculls team.

There will be plenty more chances for more Cavalier medals. The U.S. women’s soccer team, featuring Becky Sauerbrunn and Morgan Brian, won its group and begins knockout play against Sweden on Friday (12:00 PM Eastern). U.S. women’s field hockey is tied for first in its preliminary group. And Leah Smith has a chance for another individual medal with the 800 meter freestyle events Thursday and Friday.
