GLASGOW -- Hilary Caldwell was a fraction of a second from climbing one step higher on the podium at the Commonwealth Games. The Victoria swimmer had the lead halfway through Sundays final of the womens 200-metre backstroke, only to be passed by two Australian competitors -- including one right at the wall -- in having to settle for bronze. Caldwell finished 1.27 seconds back of Belinda Hocking for first place, but was just 0.04 seconds off Emily Seebohms silver-medal time of two minutes 08.51 seconds. "I knew it was going to be pretty quick. Those Aussie girls are always fast," said Caldwell, who finished in 2:08.55. "Its never great to be out-touched (at the wall) for any medal. I was just off the silver and a little bit off the gold today. Caldwell was fastest in qualifying, and swam even faster in the final, but wasnt able to hold off either Hocking or Seebohm over the final 100 metres in a race that saw Genevieve Cantin of Lac Beauport, Que., finish seventh and Sinead Russell of Burlington, Ont., wind up eighth. "Belinda is always a back-halfer. Shes negative split them before," said Caldwell. "Thats definitely her strong suit, the back end of the race. I struggled a bit with being sick a bit on and off this year so maybe my fitness isnt quite where it needs to be." Still, the 23-year-old collected Canadas fifth medal at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre through four days of competition. Meanwhile, Remi Pelletier-Roy of Longueuil, Que., added another bronze for Canada in the mens 20-kilometre scratch race -- the countrys first of the Games in cycling -- after the 24-year-old finished third behind New Zealands Shane Archbold and Australias Glenn OShea at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome. "The track program came here with big goals and I think getting a medal was the very least we were hoping for," said Pelletier-Roy. "Getting to the last race, it was our last chance to do it so Im pretty happy to put that on the board for us as a program and for myself." After four days of competition in Scotland, Canada sits tied for sixth in the overall medal standings with 18 -- seven gold, three silver and eight bronze. Katerine Savard of Pont-Rouge, Que., wasnt able to add to the tally or match her gold-medal winning performance from the womens 100-metre butterfly in the 50-metre fly, finishing sixth with a time of 26.27 seconds. "To be honest Im a little bit disappointed," said the 21-year-old. "I was expecting faster, but I have the 200-metre butterfly (on Monday) so Im going to focus on that." Englands Francesca Halshall was first in 25.20 seconds, followed by Arianna Vanderpool Wallace (25.53) of the Bahamas and Australias Brittany Elmslie (25.91). Montreals Sandrine Mainville was eighth. "The other girls were just faster than me today," added Savard. "Its not a really good time for me. A small thing can make a big difference." Staying in the pool, Calgarys Yuri Kisil grabbed a surprising fourth-place finish in the mens 100-metre freestyle behind a trio of Aussies. Kisil qualified for the final with the seventh fastest time, but touched in a personal best 49.27 seconds. Aurelie Rivard of Haut-Richelieu, Que., finished fourth in the womens para-swimming 100-metre breaststroke, followed by Katarina Roxon of St. Johns, N.L., in fifth. Ottawas Erika Seltenreich-Hodgson was fifth in the womens 200-metre individual medley, with 17-year-old Sydney Pickrem, who swims out of St-Jerome, Que., finishing eighth. In the only other final involving Canadians, Calgarys Russell Wood finished seventh in the mens 50-metre backstroke. Meanwhile, Torontos Brittany MacLean advanced to the womens 800-metre freestyle final, while Mainville moved onto to the womens 100-metre freestyle final where she will be joined by fellow Montrealers Victoria Poon and Alyson Ackman. Tera van Beilen of Oakville, Ont., and Kierra Smith of Kelowna, B.C., will swim in final of the womens 100-metre breaststroke, while Torontos Martha McCabe failed to advance. Edmontons Richard Funk qualified for the mens 50-metre breaststroke final, but Vancouvers Coleman Allen, as well as Evan White and Gamal Assaad, both of Oakville, failed to advance in the mens 100-metre butterfly. Elsewhere at the Games, Lanni Marchant, from London, Ont., finished fourth in the womens marathon, completing the two-loop course that wound around Glasgow in two hours 31 minutes 14 seconds. Mohammed Ahmed raced to fifth in the mens 5,000 metres on the first day of track and field. The 23-year-old from St. Catharines, Ont., ran 13 minutes 18.88 seconds -- a personal best and the third fastest time ever by a Canadian. "Fifth, you know, I was really close but I gave everything I had, I just made tactical errors," said Ahmed. "I am a bit disappointed, I really wanted to go out there and be right there with those guys. "But I am a bit closer than I was last year and I have another race coming up on Friday (the 10,000 metres) and another Canadian there with me (Cam Levins) which will make it a little bit easier. So I am just going to go out there and have fun." Notes: Sultana Frizell of Perth, Ont., threw a Commonwealth Games record in qualifying for Monday nights womens hammer throw final. The 29-year-old defending champion threw 68.92 metres, almost a full metre better than the rest of the field. ...

"Im excited just for a new start, just to see where things are going, to bring some kind of tradition back to the team and guys being excited about something new," the defensive back said during a conference call Monday after agreeing to stay with the Bombers rather than go to free agency next month.Christine Sinclair had no idea when she first tugged on a Canada jersey that shed ever make anywhere near No. 200. But on the eve of her 200th appearance, Canadas captain and one of the games finest female players said its a testament to how the national womens program has grown over the course of her career. "Someone like Charmaine Hooper, she played on the national team forever and never made 200 caps," Sinclair told The Canadian Press in a phone interview Wednesday. "Andrea Neil as well. . . there just werent as many games played. Then you look at myself at 200 caps. We have so many players that are above 100 caps, and that had never happened before. "It just goes to show the support the womens team has been given, and just the sheer number of international games we get to play now." Neil played 132 games for Canada, while Hooper played 129. Of the current Canadian womens squad, Diana Matheson has 154 caps, Rhian Wilkinson has 143, followed by Sophie Schmidt (109) and Karina LeBlanc (106). The 30-year-old Sinclair will earn her 200th cap -- yet another major milestone in a career paved with them -- when the Canadians play Scotland in the opening game of the Torneio Internacional Cidade de Sao Paolo tournament in Brazil. "I think everyones excited," said Canadas coach John Herdman. "Im pleased youve reminded us (of Sinclairs 200th cap) because I think we almost forgot, weve been that focused on our work preparing for this first game against Scotland. I know it will get mentioned in one of the meetings (Thursday). For Sinclair, were just hoping she puts a goal in." The Burnaby, B.C., native has 146 career goals, and is third behind Americans Abby Wambach and Mia Hamm. Of the countless memories shes compiled over 199 games, she said her "once-a-career-type" goal happened at this same tournament in Brasilia in 2010. Canada was trailing Brazil in the final and was down to 10 players when Sinclair scored in the 82nd minute. The tie gave Canada the tournament victory based on goal difference. "Just received a pass from Melissa Tancredi, I was probably 30 yards out. One-timed it, left foot, top corner," Sinclair said. "It was one of those thinggs that youll never do again.dddddddddddd But in terms of striking a ball, thats one that I remember." Her first game was against China in the Algarve Cup. She was 16. "I remember being so nervous because I had just watched them win a silver medal at the World Cup, in that famous game against the Americans in 1999, and next thing I know here I am playing against them, and just being so nervous," Sinclair said. Her first goal came in her very next appearance, versus Norway. "That was interesting because it was the team Even (Pellerud, Canadas coach at the time) used to coach, and they were one of the best teams in the world, and all we had been told is their goalkeeper (Bente Nordby) was the best goalkeeper in the world," Sinclair said. "I intercepted a pass from one of their centre-backs and I went in on a breakaway and scored, and it was crazy. It was obviously a goal Ill never forget." No question, she said, her best memories -- and greatest feeling of accomplishment -- came at the London Olympics, where the Canadian women beat France for bronze. Sinclair said her parents still ask her why shes missing from all the pictures of her teammates celebrating on the pitch in Coventry. "I have to explain to them You dont understand, the whistle blew and I broke down in tears," she said. "You work so hard to accomplish that and to actually reach one of your childhood dreams, not many people can say they actually get to do that, and I was just completely overwhelmed by the whole winning a bronze medal, and then stepping onto the podium and seeing the Canadian flag rise. Its pretty special." Sinclair said, like most of her teammates, shes only thinking as far ahead as the womens World Cup in Canada in 2015, and the 2016 Olympics in Rio. Shell re-evaluate everything after that. "Right now, talking on the phone, I cant imagine only playing for two more years," she said. "Assuming I can stay healthy, obviously I want to keep going." Brazil, at No. 4, is the top-ranked team in the four-country tournament. The seventh-ranked Canadians play unranked Chile on Dec. 15, and Brazil on the Dec. 18. The final is Dec. 22. 19:23ET 11-12-13 ' ' '
