PHOTOS: In Salt Lake City, Utah for #WhatDrivesYou interviews with the Canadian Women’s National Soccer Team on the eve of the London Games

Took a trip to Salt Lake City in late June to meet up with the Canadian Women’s National Soccer Team. We were there to interview a few players as part of the What Drives You? video series.

It was really something special to see the women’s team become the story of the London Games. When we met the team they were training in Salt Lake City in preparation of the London Olympics which was still a couple of weeks away.

The team was training at the University Of Utah. On our way to a morning practice session – I was reminded that Salt Lake city hosted its own Olympic Games just a decade ago.

Women’s National Team captain Christine Sinclair. I wasn’t surprised that Sinclair became a star of the London Games for Canada – and the eventual flag-bearer during the closing ceremonies. When we interviewed @Sincy12 – I could see she had fire in her eyes and was anxious for the BIG stage of the Olympics. Sinclair would go on to have one of the greatest performances ever for a Canadian athlete in an Olympic Games.

Diana Matheson would go on to score a very big goal for Canada – the bronze medal winner over France.

We kicked off What Drives You? with our interview with goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc. Karina gave a great interviews and it’s awesome to know today that Karina’s words did indeed come true.
