TOKYO, Japan (WCTV) - After a 364 day delay, competition in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games began Tuesday night for those of us still stateside, with the opening of the softball and women’s soccer competitions.
Athletes with local ties to the area competed all evening long. Here’s how they performed:
Gabby Carle - Canada

Kaleigh Rafter - Canada
Former Florida State catcher Kaleigh Rafter caught and hit clean-up for Team Canada as they shut out Mexico, 4-0, in the Mexicans first ever Olympic softball game.
Rafter went 2-for-4 with an RBI, knocking in the game’s first run, part of a two-run bottom of the first for Canada.
Elisa Cecchetti - Italy
Former TCC Eagle Elisa Cecchetti did not see the field in Italy’s 2-0 loss to the United States.
