How do you feel about this experience?
This should be a completely different experience given that we are the home team with a great opportunity to promote our sport on the world stage.

What would a medal performance by one of your athletes mean to you as a coach?
Winning a medal here in Toronto will allow us to showcase our sport to Canadians. The sport provides a truly international experience for players and there are great opportunities for future players. If things go the way I believe they will, we will need many more grassroots coaches to help us.
