The Rio Olympic Games are in full swing and Canadians will be competing against the world on Monday. 

Here's a look five events involving Team Canada that will be well worth your time.

Canada's most seasoned Olympic athlete, 56-year-old Lesley Thompson-Willie, will lead her team against New Zealand and Great Britain in the second heat. Don't set the start time in stone: some rowing events have been delayed due to high winds on the water.
