Women’s Field Hockey

A journey that is 32 years in the making.

In 2019 at their last chance Olympic qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Games an Olympic berth for the Canadian Women’s Field Hockey Team came down to a shootout.  It was Canada vs Ireland playing in Ireland.  The Irish ranked 8th in the world and Canada 15th, one game, the winner goes to the Olympics.  At the end of regulation, it was 0-0.  A shootout would determine their fate, Canada was up 3-1 in penalty shots until the Irish goaltender shut them down.  Utter heartbreak and devastation the Canadians lost 4-3 and just like that their Olympic dream was crushed.
