Jenny Gilbert is among 15 athletes announced Wednesday by Softball Canada to don the red and white at the Tokyo Olympic Games.  

Gilbert helped Canada qualify for the Olympics at the 2019 WBSC Americas Qualifier in Surrey, B.C., by finishing in the top two of the 12-team tournament. An outfielder originally from Saskatoon, Gilbert was also on Team Canada that captured a silver medal at the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, Peru.  

Canada is ranked third in the WBSC Women’s Softball World Rankings and has won three bronze medals over the last five WBSC World Championships.  

Softball returns to the Olympic Games after being left off in London in 2012 and Rio in 2016. Canada finished fourth in Beijing in 2008.
