When: Aug. 12, 6:20 p.m. (Round 1); Aug. 14, 6:20 p.m. (Semifinals); Aug. 16, 6:15 p.m. (Finals)

Disappointed by a 2012 Olympic run that ended in the semifinals, Stellingwerff rebounded and earned an at-large bid for Team Canada for the Rio Games. The 34-year old’s best time this season is 4:05.61 and ran her qualifying race in 4:18.99.
