BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — Canada's Alexander Milanovich picked up a bronze medal in the men's 50-metre breaststroke at the Youth Olympic Games on Friday.

The 16-year-old from Etobicoke, Ont., finished in 27.87 seconds, just behind China's Jiajun Sun in second (27.85) and South Africa's Michael James in first (27.51).

Milanovich along with teammates Madison Broad, Joshua Liendo and Kyla Leibel also finished in seventh in the 4x100 mixed medley later Friday.
