Canada's Beckie scores fastest Olympic goal ever


Canada's women's soccer team got off to an absolute dream start at Rio 2016, needing a mere 20 seconds to open the scoring in its opening Group F clash against a favoured Australian side.

Before most supporters could get settled in at the Corinthians Arena on Wednesday, Janine Beckie took a perfect pass from captain Christine Sinclair and found the net with the most simple of tap-ins.

The goal surpassed the previous record of 42 seconds, which was set when American Heather O'Reilly netted the opener in a 4-0 victory over New Zealand at Beijing 2008.
