Brianne Theisen-Eaton, a University of Oregon graduate, won bronze for Team Canada in the heptathlon Saturday, roaring back from a disappointing finish the night before.

Theisen-Eaton, who entered Rio ranked number one in the world, placed third in high jump, seventh in the 200-meter sprint, and sixth in hurdles, an event she was favored to win.

Her chance at an Olympic medal was improbable when she walked off the field Friday night.

But she fired back on Saturday and edged her way onto the podium with strong performances in long jump and javelin. Then clinching bronze with a third place finish in the 800-meters.

“Going into this, I probably wouldn’t have said, ‘Yeah, I want a bronze medal,’” Theisen-Eaton told reporters Saturday morning, “But I’m really, really happy with it. The Olympics is tough … I’m really proud of myself, and I’m happy.”

Draped in a Canadian flag, the bronze medalist was embraced by her husband and fellow Olympian, Ashton Eaton.

“Good job,” he said. “I’m proud of you. Way to battle.”

The duo, who were married in 2013, trained together as teammates at the University of Oregon and continue to train together under the direction of Harry Marra.

Eaton sported some Canadian gear while cheering on his wife’s impressive surge from sixth to third.

Some people were not happy with the U.S. Olympian’s show of support and took to twitter to express their discontent.

Yeah. I think so.

Eaton responded to the criticism in a series of tweets:

However, the negative comments were met with overwhelming support from fans and members of the track community.
