We love supporting our hemp fuelled athletes and hearing all about the amazing things they have accomplished. Keep reading for spotlights on University of Waterloo field hockey player, Alana Raymond and Biathlete, Julia Ransom!
Alana Raymond – University of Waterloo Women’s Varsity Field Hockey Team Member
Earlier this year, Alana Raymond and her University of Waterloo teammates competed in the Field Hockey OUS Championships where they won the bronze medal against York University.
The game was tight through all 70 minutes of play, and Alana’s team scored the only goal of the game in the 24th minute of play making it 1-0. A goal for either team could have changed the outcome of the game drastically, so Waterloo had to be extra strong defensively and ensure that York had no chances to tie up the game.
Alana’s position as a defender meant she had to be both mentally and physically strong through all 70 minutes to ensure she and her teammates continued to shut down the opposition’s attempts at attacking, and provide their offence with as many opportunities as possible.
Congrats to Alana and team Waterloo!
Julia had some really good races during the trails and will be joining three veteran World Cup racers to complete the women’s team for the first set of races before Christmas.
Julia said that the best part of the experience was testing her body and being out in the mountains. She also told us that she’s a big fan of our HempPro 70 Chocolate and uses it after her races to aid in her recovery.
Good luck at the World Cup Julia!
