KAZAN, Russia -- Kimberly Hyacinthe earned Canadas first gold at the 2013 World University Games by winning the womens 200 metres final on Wednesday. The Terrebonne, Que., native finished first with a personal-best time of 22.78 seconds on a four-medal day for Canada. Ellie Black, a 2012 Olympian from Halifax, collected two medals in womens artistic gymnastics with a silver in the floor final and bronze on the beam. Canadas fourth medal on the day came in the pool, with the womens 4x100-metre freestyle relay team of Sandrine Mainville of Boucherville, Que., Caroline Lapierre-Lemire of Rouyn-Noranda, Que., Paige Schultz of Toronto and Brittany MacLean of Etobicoke, Ont., capturing bronze. It was also a strong day for team sports as three Canadian squads booked their ticket for the quarter-finals. Canada advanced out of pool play in mens soccer, womens water polo and womens basketball. Hyacinthe, a University of Quebec at Montreal student, became the first Canadian female to win individual gold in athletics at the FISU Games. "Im happy to have the first gold medal for Canada and I believe theres more to come," said Hyacinthe. "I think I came off the corner second, so I knew I was good to go because the last stretch is my strength. "The track is great, the people are great ... its been more than we could ask for." Hanna-Maari Latvala of Finland (22.98) and Andreea Luiza Ograzeanu of Romania (23.10) claimed silver and bronze, respectively, while Shai-Anne Davis, of Richmond, B.C., finished just outside the podium in 23.12. Before Blacks performance, Canadas only FISU Games medal in womens artistic gymnastics was a third-place finish by Anita Botnen at the beam 30 years ago in Edmonton. Canadian women had not competed in the sport at the Universiade since 1999. "Its incredible and Im so happy," Black. "In my vault final, I didnt medal but that was still the highlight because Ive landed one vault Ive never competed before. This has been amazing to represent Canada so well. I am so proud and to bring home medals is incredible." The bronze medal-winning womens relay touched the wall in 3:40.71. Russian took the gold in a Universiade record time of 3:38.15 with the U.S. just 0.45 behind. "I think the goal of the whole day was to medal," said MacLean, a 2012 Olympian. "Its great to bring home a medal on the first night and get the ball rolling for Team Canadas success at this meet. "Going into the next few days I think people are excited. Were capable of being up there with the rest of the world and we are going to be a force to reckon with the rest of the week."
