Mississauga’s Bianca Andreescu, Canada’s first Grand Slam singles champion, and Toronto’s Penny Oleksiak, a four-time Olympic medallist, were spotted courtside celebrating their success at Scotiabank Arena on Monday night.
The Raptors’ Twitter account shared a GIF of the athletes on Monday night with the caption “Cheers, ladies.”
Thousands of Twitter users have liked the post and many responded to the tweet expressing their excitement.
