Team Canada athletes get inked following Rio 2016

Getting an Olympic rings tattoo is a post-Games tradition many Rio 2016 athletes looked forward to after making their Olympic debut.

Here’s a look at some first-time Olympians’ new ink.

Penny Oleksiak – Swimming

Not many 16-year-olds have their parent’s permission to get a tattoo, but it’s hard to say no to an Olympic record holder who brought home four Rio 2016 medals.

Taylor Ruck – Swimming

Oleksiak won’t be the only Olympian sporting a new tattoo in high school, her teammate Taylor Ruck also got some new ink to celebrate her Rio 2016 hardware.
