Guest Speaker


Our guest speaker today was Gordon Johnston, member of the Canadian national field hockey team. He made his debut with the Canadian National Team in 2011.

He then competed with both the junior and senior national teams, helping Canada win silver at the 2012 Junior Pan American Championship before competing at the 2013 FIH Junior World Cup.

He made his international multi-sport competition debut at the 2014 Commonwealth Games after being part of Canada’s second place finish at the 2014 Champions Challenge 1 in Malaysia.

In 2015 he was a part of a team and group of players who shot in two shootout wins in the FIH World League Round 3 quarterfinal against New Zealand and in the 2015 Pan Am Games semifinal against Brazil. His performance in the shootouts was key to helping Canada qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil.
