SINGAPORE — Canada’s unbeaten run in the 3-on-3 basketball tournament came to an end in the semifinal Sunday with a 28-21 loss to China at the Youth Olympics.

Canada will now focus on a bronze medal game Monday against the United States.

“We need to learn from the mistakes we made in this game and correct them,” said Tiye Traore of Sudbury, Ont. “We really need to get off to a better start.”

Canada’s track and field team was highlighted Sunday by Isatu Fofanah of Ponoka who ran a personal best time of 24.42 seconds in the final of the women’s 200-metre, finishing sixth.

“My start was really good, I just slowed down a little in the last 50 metres,” said Fofanah.

In equestrian, Dominique Shone of Langley, B.C., had penalty-free run to tie eight other riders for first place in the individual jumping competition. Shone and horse Roxy Girl will ride for a medal Tuesday.

Saskatoon’s Gabrielle Edwards and Rayann Chin of Pickering, Ont., finished fifth in their B finals in the 3,000-metre and shot put, respectively.

“The whole experience was really great and I can learn from it,” said Markham, Ont., native Eamon Kichuk who was sixth in the men’s 3,000-metre B final.
